PHD finger protein 6 (PHF6) is a gene that encodes a protein with two PHD-type zinc finger domains. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, frameshift insertions and deletions, and whole gene deletions are observed in cancers such as acute lymphoblastic leukemia, lung cancer, and skin cancer.

PHF6 is altered in 0.89% of all cancers with acute myeloid leukemia, lung adenocarcinoma, myelodysplastic syndromes, endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma, and colon adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].
