Far upstream element (FUSE) binding protein 1 (FUBP1) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions as a single stranded DNA-binding protein. The protein binds to several DNA elements, including FUSE located on c-myc. The protein regulates c-myc in undifferentiated cells. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, whole gene deletions, and frameshift deletions and insertions are observed in cancers such as cancers of the central nervous system, intestinal cancer, and cancers of the upper aerodigestive tract.
FUBP1 is altered in 1.17% of all cancers with lung adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma, oligodendroglioma, and anaplastic oligodendroglioma having the greatest prevalence of alterations .
The most common alterations in FUBP1 are FUBP1 Mutation (0.71%), FUBP1 Amplification (0.09%), FUBP1 Loss (0.06%), FUBP1 R430C (0.05%), and FUBP1 R344Q (0.01%) .
