DNA-damage-inducible transcript 3 (DDIT3) is a gene that encodes a transcription factor protein that functions as dominant negative inhibitor of DNA binding activity in C/EBP and liver activator proteins. Fusions, missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions are observed in cancers such as intestinal cancer, lung cancer, and skin cancer.

DDIT3 is altered in 0.17% of all cancers.

The most common alterations in DDIT3 are DDIT3 Mutation (0.00%), DDIT3 R156C (0.00%), and DDIT3 S88T (0.00%) [3].
