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 0.92% of all cancers with breast invasive ductal carcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, and endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

The most common alterations in CCND3 are CCND3 Amplification (0.58%), CCND3 Mutation (0.52%), CCND3 R271Pfs*53 (0.03%), CCND3 Loss (0.02%), and CCND3 Q276* (0.02%) [3].
