Genes

BCL6

B-cell CLL/lymphoma 6 (BCL6) is a gene that encodes a protein that is a zinc finger transcription factor. The protein functions in transcriptional repression and the regulation of interleukin dependent responses in B-cells. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift insertions and deletions, and in-frame deletions are observed in cancers such as esophageal cancer, intestinal cancer, and stomach cancer.
