Additional information from mouse insertional mutagenesis experiments support ATXN1 as a cancer driver gene.
Genomic regions are listed below where clusters of insertional events (Common Insertion Sites, CIS) have driven the progression of cancer in mouse models (Ranzani et al; 2013).

|Insertional Cluster (CIS)
If the frequency of transposon insertions in a given genomic region is higher than expected by chance, the region is called a CIS and the genes within or near this region are identified as candidate cancer genes.
