Gene Symbol FGFR2
Synonyms BBDS | BEK | BFR-1 | CD332 | CEK3 | CFD1 | ECT1 | JWS | K-SAM | KGFR | TK14 | TK25
Gene Description FGFR2, fibroblast growth factor receptor 2, is a receptor tyrosine kinase activated upon binding of the FGF ligand, which activates RAS-MAPK and PI3K-AKT pathways (PMID: 22508544). Altered function of FGFR2 through activating mutations, fusions, and amplification increases cell proliferation and tumorigenesis (PMID: 22508544) and is observed in prostate (PMID: 30761180), breast, lung, uterine, and ovarian cancers (PMID: 29104507), while FGFR2 amplification (PMID: 31076567) and overexpression (PMID: 30662521) is commonly observed in gastric cancer.

Filtering

  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"

Sorting

  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

Variant Impact Protein Effect Variant Description Associated with drug Resistance
act mut unknown gain of function FGFR2 act mut indicates that this variant results in a gain of function in the Fgfr2 protein. However, the specific amino acid change has not been identified.
fusion fusion unknown FGFR2 fusion indicates a fusion of the FGFR2 gene, but the fusion partner is unknown.
inact mut unknown loss of function FGFR2 inact mut indicates that this variant results in a loss of function of the Fgfr2 protein. However, the specific amino acid change has not been identified.
mutant unknown unknown FGFR2 mutant indicates an unspecified mutation in the FGFR2 gene.
rearrange unknown unknown FGFR2 rearrangement indicates an unspecified rearrangement of the FGFR2 gene.
G183fs frameshift loss of function - predicted FGFR2 G183fs results in a change in the amino acid sequence of the Fgfr2 protein beginning at aa 183 of 821, likely resulting in premature truncation of the functional protein (UniProt.org). Due to the loss of the protein kinase domain (UniProt.org), G183fs is predicted to lead to a loss of Fgfr2 function.
T764fs frameshift unknown FGFR2 T764fs results in a change in the amino acid sequence of the Fgfr2 protein beginning at aa 764 of 821, likely resulting in premature truncation of the functional protein (UniProt.org). T764fs has not been characterized and therefore, its effect on Fgfr2 protein function is unknown (PubMed, May 2020).
