Cyclin D2 (CCND2) is a gene that encodes for a protein that functions in the regulation of CDK kinases in the cell cycle. Fusions, missense, nonsense, and silent mutations are observed in cancers such as esophageal cancer, skin cancer, and stomach cancer.

CCND2 is altered in 1.24% of all cancers with colon adenocarcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, testicular mixed germ cell tumor, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, and conventional glioblastoma multiforme having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

CCND2 GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in CCND2 are CCND2 Amplification (0.85%), CCND2 Mutation (0.54%), CCND2 Loss (0.07%), CCND2 R262C (0.01%), and CCND2 R285Q (0.01%) [3].
