Patched 1 (PTCH1) is a gene that encodes a protein that belongs to the patched gene family. The protein functions as a receptor protein for sonic hedgehog, desert hedgehog, and indian hedgehog proteins. Fusions, missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, whole gene deletions, frameshift deletions and insertions, and in-frame deletions and insertions are observed in cancers such as bone cancer, skin cancer, and vulvar cancer.

PTCH1 is altered in 2.76% of all cancers with colon adenocarcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma, cutaneous melanoma, and breast invasive ductal carcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

PTCH1 GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in PTCH1 are PTCH1 Mutation (2.20%), PTCH1 Missense (2.03%), PTCH1 Nonsense (0.18%), PTCH1 Loss (0.09%), and PTCH1 Amplification (0.06%) [3].
