Signal transducer and activator of transcription 5B (STAT5B) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions as a transcription activator. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions and insertions are observed in cancers such as intestinal cancer, skin cancer, and stomach cancer.

STAT5B is altered in 0.83% of all cancers with colon adenocarcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma, prostate adenocarcinoma, and breast invasive ductal carcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].
