Erythropoietin receptor (EPOR) is a gene that encodes a receptor protein that belongs to the cytokine receptor family. The receptor protein functions in the activation of JAK2 tyrosine kinase. The protein also plays a role in erythroid cell survival. Fusions, rearrangements, missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions are observed in cancers such as breast cancer, endometrial cancer, and ovarian cancer.
