Serine/threonine kinase 11 (STK11) is a gene that encodes a protein that belongs to the serine/threonine kinase family. The protein functions in the regulation of cell polarity and is also a tumor suppressor. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, whole gene deletions, frameshift deletions and insertions, and in-frame deletions are observed in cancers such as cervical cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, and lung cancer.

STK11 is altered in 3.04% of all cancers with lung adenocarcinoma, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, non-small cell lung carcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, and adenocarcinoma of unknown primary having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

STK11 GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in STK11 are STK11 Mutation (1.76%), STK11 Loss (0.31%), STK11 X155_splice (0.10%), STK11 Amplification (0.11%), and STK11 X200_splice (0.07%) [3].
