Synovial sarcoma, X breakpoint 2 (SSX2) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions as a transcriptional repressor. The protein also elicits humoral and cellular immune responses in cancer patients. Fusions, missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift deletions and insertions, and in-frame deletions are observed in cancers such as hematopoietic and lymphoid cancers.
