Actin, beta (ACTB) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions in cell motility, structure, and integrity. The protein is also an important component of the contractile apparatus and one of two non-muscle cytoskeletal actins. Fusions, missense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift insertions and deletions are observed in cancers such as salivary gland cancer, stomach cancer, and cancers of the urinary tract.
