Myeloid differentiation primary response 88 (MYD88) is a gene that encodes a cytosolic adapter protein necessary for both innate and adaptive immune response. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and in-frame deletions are observed in cancers such as leukemias, lung cancer, and skin cancer.

MYD88 is altered in 0.81% of all cancers with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, not otherwise specified, lung adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma, and bladder urothelial carcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

MYD88 GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in MYD88 are MYD88 Mutation (0.70%), MYD88 Exon 5 Mutation (0.32%), MYD88 L265P (0.27%), MYD88 Exon 3 Mutation (0.14%), and MYD88 Exon 4 Mutation (0.06%) [3].
