Cyclin D3 (CCND3) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions in the regulation of CDK kinases in the cell cycle. Fusions, missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions and insertions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, skin cancer, and stomach cancer.

CCND3 is altered in 1.11% of all cancers with lung adenocarcinoma, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, not otherwise specified, and esophageal adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

CCND3 GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in CCND3 are CCND3 Amplification (0.59%), CCND3 Mutation (0.47%), CCND3 Q276* (0.04%), CCND3 Loss (0.03%), and CCND3 P284S (0.03%) [3].
