MDM2 proto-oncogene, E3 ubiquitin protein ligase (MDM2) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions as a nuclear-localized E3 ubiquitin ligase. Missense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift deletions, and in-frame deletions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, intestinal cancer, and stomach cancer.

MDM2 is altered in 3.14% of all cancers with lung adenocarcinoma, dedifferentiated liposarcoma, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, bladder urothelial carcinoma, and conventional glioblastoma multiforme having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

MDM2 GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in MDM2 are MDM2 Amplification (2.85%), MDM2 Mutation (0.56%), MDM2 Fusion (0.11%), MDM2 Loss (0.02%), and MDM2 S304F (0.02%) [3].
