      Hi,  I found out I have this gene in my melanoma tumors.  I am trying to find out information.  Is this gene inherited?  I have a daughter and I hope I didn't give it to her.  I am being evaluated for Zelboraf.

      thanks,

      Terri

          The positive mtation gene is not inherite.  I too was concerned for my children.
