Fms-related tyrosine kinase 1 (FLT1) is a gene that encodes a protein that is a receptor tyrosine kinase in the vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGF) family. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions are observed in cancers such as intestinal cancer, skin cancer, and stomach cancer.

FLT1 is altered in 3.07% of all cancers with lung adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, cutaneous melanoma, melanoma, and endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

FLT1 GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in FLT1 are FLT1 Mutation (2.48%), FLT1 Missense (2.35%), FLT1 Amplification (0.39%), FLT1 Nonsense (0.17%), and FLT1 Loss (0.08%) [3].
