CREB binding protein (CREBBP) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions in transcriptional activation and is involved in the regulation of embryonic development, growth control, and homeostasis. The protein also acetylates histone proteins. Fusions, missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift insertions and deletions, and in-frame deletions are observed in cancers such as intestinal cancer, skin cancer, and stomach cancer.

CREBBP is altered in 5.04% of all cancers with lung adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, bladder urothelial carcinoma, follicular lymphoma, and breast invasive ductal carcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

CREBBP GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in CREBBP are CREBBP Mutation (4.57%), CREBBP Loss (0.14%), CREBBP I1084fs (0.13%), CREBBP Amplification (0.13%), and CREBBP S1680del (0.09%) [3].
