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.
