Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARG) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions as a nuclear receptor. The protein also regulates adipocyte differentiation. Fusions, missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, skin cancer, and stomach cancer.

PPARG is altered in 1.01% of all cancers with bladder urothelial carcinoma, cutaneous melanoma, lung adenocarcinoma, melanoma, and endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].
