Small cell lung cancer (WP4658)

Homo sapiens

Small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) is a highly malignant cancer of the lung. Genes altered in small cell lung carcinoma: * TP53 is mutated in 70-90% of SCLCs. * RB1 is inactivated in most SCLCs. * PTEN is mutated in 2-10% of SCLCs. * MYC amplifications and amplification of MYC family members is found in 30% of SCLCs. * FHIT protein expression is lost due to Loss of heterozygocity (LOH) on chromosome arm 3p found in more than 80% of SCLCs. This description was adapted from [ Wikipedia]. Phosphorylation sites were added based on information from PhosphoSitePlus (R),
