The APC gene encodes a tumor suppressor protein that acts as an antagonist of the Wnt signaling pathway. APC promotes rapid degradation of beta-catenin and participates in Wnt signaling as a negative regulator. Germline defects in this gene cause familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), an autosomal dominant pre-malignant disease that usually progresses to malignancy. Somatic mutations in APC have been reported in 4% of lung adenocarcinomas, the prognostic and therapeutic implications of which remain to be fully elucidated. APC K1454E lies within the beta-catenin binding and down-regulation region of the Apc protein. K1454E suppresses beta-catenin mediated transcription at a level similar to wild-type Apc in a cell culture assay and therefore, is predicted to have no effect on Apc protein function. This variant has also been reported as a germline variant in prior studies and reported in ClinVar (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/clinvar/RCV000200964/) as likely benign.
