|Gene Description||STK11, serine/threonine kinase 11, is a tumor suppressor (PMID: 30562755) involved in cell metabolism, growth, polarity, and tumor suppression through the regulation of AMPK family members (PMID: 26398719). STK11 germline mutations are common in Peutz-Jeghers syndrome and somatic STK11 mutations have been identified in melanoma, lung, pancreatic, cervical, and endometrial cancers (PMID: 26877140, PMID: 29191602) and are often associated with resistance to immune checkpoint blockcade (PMID: 30626603).|
