GATA binding protein 2 (GATA2) is a gene that encodes a zinc-finger transcription factor in the GATA family. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift deletions, and in-frame deletions and insertions are observed in cancers such as colorectal cancer, lung cancer, and skin cancer.

GATA2 is altered in 1.13% of all cancers with colon adenocarcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, acute myeloid leukemia, prostate adenocarcinoma, and endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

The most common alterations in GATA2 are GATA2 Mutation (0.84%), GATA2 Exon 3 Mutation (0.37%), GATA2 Amplification (0.16%), GATA2 Exon 5 Mutation (0.13%), and GATA2 Exon 4 Mutation (0.11%) [3].
