MYD88 in the glossary for Waldenström's macroglobulinemia

MYD88 (myeloid differentiation factor 88) is a driver gene found in hematologic B-cell malignancies.

The MYD88 (myeloid differentiation factor 88) gene encodes a protein involved in signaling within immune cells. The MYD88 protein serves to transmit extracellular signals to within cells. MYD88 mutations are a driver in hematologic B-cell malignancies. The missense mutation (L265P) is found in ∼90% of Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia cases.
