Speckle-type POZ protein (SPOP) is a gene that encodes a protein that regulates the transcriptional repression carried out by death-associated protein 6 (DAXX). Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift insertions, and in-frame deletions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, meningeal cancer, and prostate cancer.

SPOP is altered in 1.83% of all cancers with prostate adenocarcinoma, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma, invasive breast carcinoma, and lung adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].
