Associated Genetic Biomarkers

Overview

NCI Definition: A carcinoma arising from the epithelium of the renal parenchyma or the renal pelvis. The majority are renal cell carcinomas. Kidney carcinomas usually affect middle aged and elderly adults. Hematuria, abdominal pain, and a palpable mass are common symptoms. [1]

Kidney carcinomas most frequently harbor alterations in VHL, SETD2, TP53, BAP1, and MTOR [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Kidney Carcinoma

VHL Mutation, SETD2 Mutation, TP53 Mutation, BAP1 Mutation, and TP53 Missense are the most common alterations in kidney carcinoma [2].
