Several pathways have been known to be abnormal in ovarian cancer including p53, MAPK, cadherin/β-catenin, PI3CA/AKT, and cyclin E pathways. High-grade serous carcinoma (HGSCA) is characterized by very high frequency of mutations in p53, amplifications in cyclin E, AKT, and PI3CA loci. Low-grade serous carcinoma (LGSCA) harbor activating mutations in KRAS, BRAF, or ERRB2. Endometrioid carcinoma (EMCA) contains mutations in β-catenin and PTEN. Although the molecular genetic changes in clear cell carcinoma (CCCA) have not been extensively studied, mutations in PI3CA have been detected in approximately 20% of cases.
