Protein tyrosine phosphatase, non-receptor type 11 (PTPN11) is a gene that encodes a protein that is in the protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) family and functions in cell growth and differentiation. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift deletions and insertions, and in-frame deletions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, intestinal cancer, and stomach cancer.

PTPN11 is altered in 1.31% of all cancers with lung adenocarcinoma, conventional glioblastoma multiforme, acute myeloid leukemia, colon adenocarcinoma, and glioblastoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

PTPN11 GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in PTPN11 are PTPN11 Mutation (1.23%), PTPN11 Exon 3 Mutation (0.44%), PTPN11 Exon 13 Mutation (0.32%), PTPN11 G503V (0.07%), and PTPN11 E76K (0.06%) [3].
