SET binding protein 1 (SETBP1) is a gene that encodes a protein that includes a ski homology region, a SET-binding region, and three nuclear localization signals. Missense, nonsense, and silent mutations are observed in cancers such as colorectal cancer, leukemias, lung cancer, and skin cancer.

SETBP1 is altered in 4.10% of all cancers with lung adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, melanoma, myelodysplastic syndromes, and endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].
