Axin 1 (AXIN1) is a gene that encodes a cytoplasmic protein that functions as a negative regulator of the wingless-type MMTV integration site family, member 1 (WNT) signaling pathway. The protein also functions in the regulation of apoptotic induction.  Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, whole gene deletions, frameshift deletions and insertions, and in-frame insertions are observed in cancers such as biliary tract cancer, liver cancer, and salivary gland cancer.

AXIN1 is altered in 1.62% of all cancers with colorectal adenocarcinoma, non-small cell lung carcinoma, breast carcinoma, melanoma, and hepatocellular carcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].
