Fanconi anemia complementation group M (FANCM) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions in DNA repair. Missense mutations, synonymous mutations, frameshift deletions, nonsense mutations, and frameshift insertions are observed in cancers such as colon cancer, endometrial cancer, and stomach cancer.

FANCM is altered in 3.86% of all cancers with non-small cell lung carcinoma, colorectal adenocarcinoma, breast carcinoma, malignant glioma, and melanoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

FANCM GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in FANCM are FANCM Mutation (0.67%), FANCM Mutation (germline) (0.67%), FANCM Frameshift (0.04%), FANCM Frameshift (germline) (0.04%), and FANCM V1336Lfs*2 (0.02%) [3].
