MET is a member of the receptor tyrosine kinase and proto-oncogene playing a major role in tumor development and metastasis. Mutations in MET have been reported in 4-9% of cutaneous melanoma. MET E168D has not been reported in melanomas. This mutation is located in a conserved domain containing the ligand binding site. In vitro studies have shown that E168D may be associated with higher ligand affinity and higher susceptibility to c-Met inhibitors in lung cancer. The prognostic and predictive significance of MET mutations in melanoma is not clear and correlation with other clinical and laboratory findings is necessary.
