Structure-specific endonuclease subunit SLX4
Synonyms [1]

SLX4 structure-specific endonuclease subunit (SLX4) is a gene that encodes a protein that is part of a complex required for specific types of DNA repair and for cellular responses to replication fork failure. Missense mutations, synonymous mutations, nonsense mutations, and frameshift deletions are observed in cancers such as colon cancer, skin cancer, and stomach cancer.

SLX4 is altered in 3.39% of all cancers with colorectal adenocarcinoma, non-small cell lung carcinoma, breast carcinoma, melanoma, and uterine corpus neoplasm having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

SLX4 GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in SLX4 are SLX4 Mutation (1.23%), SLX4 Mutation (germline) (1.23%), SLX4 Loss (0.04%), SLX4 Amplification (0.02%), and SLX4 P469Hfs*4 (0.02%) [3].
