MRE11 meiotic recombination 11 homolog A (MRE11) is a gene that encodes a nuclear protein that functions in homologous recombination, the maintenance of telomere length, and DNA double-strand break repair. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, intestinal cancer, and stomach cancer.

MRE11A is altered in 1.30% of all cancers with non-small cell lung carcinoma, colorectal adenocarcinoma, melanoma, breast carcinoma, and uterine corpus neoplasm having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

MRE11A GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in MRE11A are MRE11A Mutation (0.78%), MRE11A Mutation (germline) (0.78%), MRE11A Frameshift (0.10%), MRE11A Frameshift (germline) (0.10%), and MRE11A Amplification (0.08%) [3].
