Regulatory associated protein of MTOR, complex 1 (RPTOR) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions in a cell signaling pathway that responds to nutrient and insulin levels to regulate cell growth. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift deletions and insertions, and in-frame deletions are observed in cancers such as intestinal cancer, skin cancer, and stomach cancer.

RPTOR is altered in 2.12% of all cancers with colon adenocarcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, cutaneous melanoma, and endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

RPTOR GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in RPTOR are RPTOR Mutation (1.77%), RPTOR Amplification (0.29%), RPTOR Loss (0.04%), RPTOR P95A (0.09%), and RPTOR R404W (0.03%) [3].
