Bromodomain containing 4 (BRD4) is a gene that encodes a protein that associates with human RING3 protein and chromosomes during mitosis. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, intestinal cancer, and stomach cancer.

BRD4 is altered in 2.37% of all cancers with colorectal adenocarcinoma, non-small cell lung carcinoma, melanoma, breast carcinoma, and uterine corpus neoplasm having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].
