The role of subunit mutations in cancer. Mutations in BAF subunit do not only cause neurodevelopmental diseases but also have an important role in tumorigenesis. Genome-wide sequencing revealed that about 20% of human cancers show BAF subunit mutations; amongst the most frequently mutated subunits is BAF250a. Like BAF complex composition unique to some tissue types, many mutations have a “unique” pattern of malignancies they play a role in
