Associated Genetic Biomarkers


NCI Definition: An adenocarcinoma arising from the vagina. Morphologic variants include the clear cell, endometrioid, mesonephric, and mucinous adenocarcinoma. [1]

Vaginal adenocarcinomas most frequently harbor alterations in TP53, LZTR1, FANCA, and ATM [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Vaginal Adenocarcinoma

TP53 c.217-c.1178 Missense, TP53 Y163N, TP53 Mutation, TP53 Missense, and TP53 Exon 5 Mutation are the most common alterations in vaginal adenocarcinoma [2].
