Nucleoporin 98kDa (NUP98) is a gene that encodes a nucleoporin protein that functions in nuclear transport - the export and import through the nuclear pore complex (NPC). The protein's specific function may be that of a nucleoporin docking protein. 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.

NUP98 is altered in 0.73% of all cancers with colon adenocarcinoma, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, high grade ovarian serous adenocarcinoma, and pancreatic adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].
