Nuclear mitotic apparatus protein 1 (NUMA1) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions as a structural component of the nuclear matrix. The protein also interacts with microtubules and helps form and organize the mitotic spindle during cell division. Fusions, missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift deletions and insertions, and in-frame deletions are observed in cancers such as intestinal cancer, skin cancer, and stomach cancer.

NUMA1 is altered in 0.20% of all cancers with lung adenocarcinoma, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, high grade ovarian serous adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, and endometrial serous adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

The most common alterations in NUMA1 are NUMA1-ALK Fusion (0.08%), NUMA1-RARA Fusion (0.07%), NUMA1-PDGFRB Fusion (0.03%), NUMA1 A1502G (0.77%), and NUMA1 E1910K (0.64%) [3].
