Definition: ARID1A is a recently identified tumor suppressor that functions in chromatin remodeling.
1p36.11 LOH is observed in human cancers
- ARID1A could have a tumor suppressor role (17492758).
mutations in ovarian carcinoma
- Inactivating mutations of ARID1A and loss of its expression most frequently occur in ovarian clear cell carcinoma , ovarian endometrioid carcinoma , and uterine endometrioid carcinoma . (24076775)
mutations in uterine endometrioid carcinoma
- Loss of ARID1A expression, presumably due to mutation, plays an important role in tumor progression of uterine endometrioid carcinoma . (24076775)
