YAP amplification and/or overexpression has been reported in various cancers (PMID: 17974916, PMID: 22609812, PMID: 32203465), including colon cancer (PMID: 31949692), esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (PMID: 31949690, PMID: 31851786), gastric cancer (PMID: 31933860), and liver cancer (PMID: 31613226), and YAP1 fusions with multiple gene partners have been commonly observed (PMID: 31145701).
