Erb-b2 receptor tyrosine kinase 3 (ERBB3) is a gene that encodes a receptor tyrosine kinase in the epidermal growth factor family. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, intestinal cancer, and stomach cancer.

ERBB3 is altered in 2.89% of all cancers with colon adenocarcinoma, bladder urothelial carcinoma, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, and endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

ERBB3 GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in ERBB3 are ERBB3 Mutation (2.53%), ERBB3 Amplification (0.30%), ERBB3 V104M (0.17%), ERBB3 E928G (0.12%), and ERBB3 V104L (0.10%) [3].
