Activating transcription factor 1 (ATF1) is a gene that encodes a transcription factor protein that functions in regulating the expression of downstream target genes that affect growth, survival, and other cellular activities. Fusions, missense mutations, and silent mutations are observed in cancers such as breast cancer, intestinal cancer, and ovarian cancer.

ATF1 is altered in 1.92% of all cancers with sarcoma, head and neck cancer, atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor, connective and soft tissue neoplasm, and head and neck squamous cell carcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

The most common alterations in ATF1 are ATF1 N165S (0.00%), ATF1 D156N (0.00%), ATF1 E217Q (0.00%), and ATF1 G145D (0.00%) [3].
