Oncogenes with gain of function mutation lead to increased transcription, etc., whereas tumor suppressor genes block G1-->S phase. NF1 gene product has RAS GTPase activity which works by phosphorylating and activating protein (neurofibromin). So there is at least 1 tumor suppressor gene that works through phosphorylation.
