Motor neuron and pancreas homeobox 1 (MNX1) is a gene that encodes a nuclear protein that functions as a transcription factor that is involved in pancreas development and function. Fusions, missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift insertions, and in-frame deletions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, intestinal cancer, and skin cancer.

MNX1 is altered in 0.15% of all cancers with breast invasive ductal carcinoma, high grade ovarian serous adenocarcinoma, invasive breast carcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, and appendix adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

The most common alterations in MNX1 are MNX1 A192S (1.85%), MNX1 A23T (0.39%), MNX1 E326G (0.22%), MNX1 G49del (0.39%), and MNX1 L30S (0.22%) [3].
