Oncogene database

Welcome to the oncogene database

Here you have the opportunity to inform yourself about cellular and viral genes/nucleic acids that have been assessed in regard to their oncogenic potential by the ZKBS or its office. The hazard potential arising from a protein?s immunomodulatory, neurodegenerative or toxic properties are unrelated to its oncogenic potential and are therefore not assessed. This list is continuously expanded and updated.

Note: Entries of designated oncogenes and/or tumour suppressor genes originating before 01.01.2017 may be outdated due to changed criteria relating to the assessment of oncogenes. You are advised to contact the office of the ZKBS (e.g. via the contact form on the main page) to inquire about the status of such genes.
The following genes/nuclei acids display transforming potential:
  • genes/nuclei acids that enable the anchorage-independent growth of relevant vertebrate cell lines in vitro
  • genes/nucleic acids that induce tumours in animals.
Besides the original literature the following databases are used for the assessment:
