Profile Name DNMT3A mutant
Gene Variant Detail

DNMT3A mutant (unknown)

Relevant Treatment Approaches


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. 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 on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "mtor c1483f")


  • 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.

DNMT3A mutant acute myeloid leukemia not applicable N/A Clinical Study Prognostic In clinical analyses, mutations in DNMT3A were associated with poor prognosis and shorter overall survival in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (PMID: 22490330, PMID: 21881046, PMID: 21670448). 22490330 21881046 21670448
DNMT3A mutant acute myeloid leukemia predicted - sensitive Decitabine Clinical Study - Cohort Actionable In a clinical study, acute myeloid leukemia patients harboring DNMT3A mutations demonstrated a greater complete response rate (60% vs 33%) compared to patients with wild-type DNMT3A when treated with frontline hypomethylating agents such as Dacogen (decitabine) (PMID: 27418649). 27418649
DNMT3A mutant acute myeloid leukemia sensitive Pinometostat Preclinical - Cell line xenograft Actionable In a preclinical study, Pinometostat (EPZ-5676) treatment of acute myeloid leukemia cell lines and xenografts resulted in apoptosis, cell-cycle arrest, and terminal differentiation (PMID: 27335278). 27335278
