RAD 51 paralog C (RAD51C) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions in the homologous recombination and repair of DNA. Missense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions are observed in cancers such as cancers of the biliary tract, endometrial cancer, and intestinal cancer.

RAD51C is altered in 1.20% of all cancers with breast carcinoma, non-small cell lung carcinoma, melanoma, colorectal adenocarcinoma, and malignant glioma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

RAD51C GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in RAD51C are RAD51C Amplification (0.43%), RAD51C Mutation (0.41%), RAD51C Mutation (germline) (0.41%), RAD51C Frameshift (0.01%), and RAD51C Frameshift (germline) (0.01%) [3].
