Gene view

The gene view histogram is a graphical view of mutations across VTI1A. These mutations are displayed at the amino acid level across the full length of the gene by default. Restrict the view to a region of the gene by dragging across the histogram to highlight the region of interest, or by using the sliders in the filters panel to the left. Show more

This default peptide view shows a histogram of single base substitutions, colour coded by residue according to the colour scheme used in Ensembl. Under this is shown the amino acid sequence and the Pfam protein structures, followed by complex mutations and insertions and deletions. The graphical view can be switched to cDNA coordinates by selecting from the "Coordinate system" options in the "Filters" panel on the left.

You can use the filters panel to select the types of data that are displayed. After adjusting a filter, press Apply filters, or press Reset filters to revert to the original, unfiltered display.

You can see more information on the help pages.



This section gives an overview of VTI1A, along with links to any related data and resources.

Census tier 2
This is a putative cancer gene, from Tier 2 of the Cancer Gene Census. Tier 2 genes have strong indictations of a role in cancer.
Curated gene
This is NOT an expert curated gene.
Mouse gene
Mouse insertional mutagenesis experiments support the designation of VTI1A as a cancer causing gene.

Drug sensitivity data

Drug resistance

This section shows the drugs that have been used to treat VTI1A mutant tumours. In the tabs below you can see any other genes that have been treated with the same drug(s), and the distribution of mutations that occur in those genes.


Tissue distribution

The table shows the distribution of mutations across the primary tissue types that are curated by COSMIC. Histograms show the percentage of mutated samples for point mutations, CNV data and gene expression data. Moving your mouse over the histograms will show additional data.

You can see additional information about the data presented here in the help pages.


Genome browser

Note that you can also view the genome browser in a separate page.

The genome browser shows COSMIC annotations for VTI1A in a genomic context. Show more

Note: in some web browsers the genome browser may display a blank content panel when switching between browser tabs or when returning to the page using the browser's Back button. If this happens please click and drag the blank content panel to reload the genome browser.


Mutation distribution

This section displays a series of charts that show the distribution of different types of mutations for VTI1A. Show more

The first chart in this section shows a summary of the types of mutation that have been observed in samples for this gene. The table shows the number of samples recorded as having a particular type of mutation, with the number in brackets giving the percentage of samples with that type of mutation.

Note that a sample may have more than one type of mutation, so the total number of samples determined by simply summing the values in the table may not match the total number of unique samples given under the table. For the same reason, summing the percentages in the table may give a value of greater than 100%.

Table Information


The table currently shows only high value (numeric) copy number data. Copy number segments are excluded if the total copy number and minor allele values are unknown.

Click here to include all copy number data. For more detailed information about copy number data and gain/loss definitions click here.

Sample Expression Expr Level (Z-Score)

Over Expressed; Z-Score > 2.0

Under Expressed; Z-Score < -2.0

Normal; Z-Score within the range -2.0 to 2.0

CN Type Minor Allele Copy Number CN Segment
Average Ploidy

1. N/A represents cases where average ploidy value is not available( mostly ICGC samples). For some TCGA samples where minor allele information is not available the average ploidy value could not be calculated.

2. For TCGA samples, Ascat algorithm is used to calculate the average ploidy.

3. For CGP samples, Picnic algorithm is used to calculate the average ploidy.

Study CNV

This page contains the complete Methylation data for the gene and filter selection(s). Each Methylation probe links to the COSMIC Genome Browser and Ensembl. You can see more information in out help pages.

Sample Name Sample ID Probe ID Probe Posn. Type

High (Hypermethylation); Beta-Value > 0.8 and differs from normal average by > 0.5

Low (Hypomethylated); Beta-Value < 0.2 and differs from normal average by > 0.5
