Tuberous sclerosis 2 (TSC2) is a gene that encodes a protein that acts as a tumor suppressor as well as an activator of GTPases. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift deletions and insertions, and in-frame deletions are observed in cancers such as parathyroid cancer, skin cancer, and stomach cancer.

TSC2 is altered in 2.96% of all cancers with lung adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma, and conventional glioblastoma multiforme having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

TSC2 GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in TSC2 are TSC2 Mutation (3.34%), TSC2 Mutation (somatic) (3.34%), TSC2 Deletion (0.12%), TSC2 Amplification (0.10%), and TSC2 Loss (0.08%) [3].
