Platelet-derived growth factor receptor, beta polypeptide (PDGFRB) is a gene that encodes a protein that is a tyrosine kinase receptor for proteins in the platelet-derived growth factor family. Fusions, rearrangements, missense, nonsense, and silent mutations are observed in cancers such as intestinal cancer, skin cancer, and stomach cancer.

PDGFRB is altered in 1.89% of all cancers with lung adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, cutaneous melanoma, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, and bladder urothelial carcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

PDGFRB GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in PDGFRB are PDGFRB Mutation (2.07%), PDGFRB Missense (1.93%), PDGFRB Amplification (0.10%), PDGFRB Nonsense (0.08%), and PDGFRB Frameshift (0.06%) [3].
