FYN proto-oncogene, Src family tyrosine kinase (FYN) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions as a membrane-associated tyrosine kinase that regulates cell growth. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift insertions are observed in cancers such as intestinal cancer, skin cancer, and stomach cancer.

FYN is altered in 0.86% of all cancers with breast invasive ductal carcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, prostate adenocarcinoma, and cutaneous melanoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

The most common alterations in FYN are FYN Mutation (0.33%), FYN Loss (0.13%), FYN Amplification (0.07%), FYN E107Q (0.01%), and FYN A315V (0.00%) [3].
