CCCTC-binding factor (zinc finger protein) (CTCF) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions as a transcriptional regulator. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, frameshift insertions, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, colon cancer, and stomach cancer.
CTCF is altered in 2.06% of all cancers with endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, and bladder urothelial carcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations .
The most common alterations in CTCF are CTCF T204fs (0.40%), CTCF Loss (0.11%), CTCF Amplification (0.07%), CTCF E691fs (0.06%), and CTCF R377C (0.05%) .
