Title Lack of Response to Imatinib in Melanoma Carrying Rare KIT Mutation p.T632I.
Journal Case reports in oncology
Vol 12
Issue 1
Date 2019 Jan-Apr
Abstract Text Approximately 15% of acral and mucous melanomas carry activating mutations in KIT oncogene. There is a diversity of spectrum of KIT mutations, with some of them rendering tumors responsive to imatinib, while others being imatinib-resistant or not studied yet. Here we present an acral melanoma patient with KIT р.T632I mutation, who failed to respond to imatinib.


  • 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"


  • 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.

KIT T632I missense unknown KIT T632I lies within the protein kinase domain of the Kit protein ( T632I is associated with resistance to select KIT inhibitors (PMID: 31043947), but has not been biochemically characterized and therefore, its effect on Kit protein function is unknown (PubMed, Feb 2022).
