Phosphoinositide-3-kinase, regulatory subunit 1 (alpha) (PIK3R1) is gene that encodes a regulatory protein subunit of the same name that functions in the phosphorylation of inositol rings. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift deletions and insertions, and in-frame deletions and insertions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, intestinal cancer, and skin cancer.

PIK3R1 is altered in 2.55% of all cancers with endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, conventional glioblastoma multiforme, and lung adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

The most common alterations in PIK3R1 are PIK3R1 Mutation (2.96%), PIK3R1 Mutation (somatic) (2.96%), PIK3R1 Loss (0.17%), PIK3R1 N564D (0.10%), and PIK3R1 G376R (0.09%) [3].
