FGFR3 Gene

Multiple Myeloma and Cervical Cancer
In addition to bladder cancer, somatic mutations in the FGFR3 gene have been associated with multiple myeloma (cancer of white blood cells) and cervical cancer.
FGFR3 mutations that lead to multiple myeloma and cervical cancer are thought to over activate the fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 protein in certain cells. The mutated receptor directs the cells to grow and divide in the absence of signals from outside the cell. This uncontrolled division can lead to the overgrowth of cancer cells.
