CCAAT/enhancer binding protein, alpha (CEBPA) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions as a transcription factor that contains a leucine zipper and identifies CCAAT motifs in the promoter regions of gene targets. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift insertions and deletions, and in-frame insertions and deletions are observed in cancers such as hematopoietic and lymphoid cancers, cervical cancer, and intestinal cancer.
