ABL proto-oncogene 2, non-receptor tyrosine kinase (ABL2) is a gene that encodes a protein non-receptor tyrosine kinase. The protein functions in cytoskeletal rearrangements. Fusions, missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift insertions and deletions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, intestinal cancer, and stomach cancer.

ABL2 is altered in 0.73% of all cancers with breast invasive ductal carcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, cutaneous melanoma, and invasive breast carcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].
