F-box and WD repeat domain containing 7, E3 ubiquitin protein ligase (FBXW7) is a gene that encodes a member of the F-box protein family. Missense, nonsense, silent, and frameshift insertions and deletions are observed in cancers such as breast cancer, colorectal cancer, leukemias, lung cancer, and skin cancer.

FBXW7 is altered in 3.26% of all cancers with colorectal adenocarcinoma, uterine corpus neoplasm, non-small cell lung carcinoma, breast carcinoma, and bladder carcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].
