Gene Symbol MDM2
Synonyms ACTFS | hdm2 | HDMX | LSKB
Gene Description MDM2, MDM2 proto-oncogene, is an E3 ubiquitin protein ligase that mediates Tp53 degradation and therefore, regulates apoptosis and cell-cycle (PMID: 27993876). Amplification and/or overexpression of MDM2 has been identified in several cancer types (PMID: 23303139, PMID: 31440117) and amplification is common in liposarcoma (PMID: 30237864) and has been observed with Mdm2 overexpression in anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-negative inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors (PMID: 32195970).
