Recurrent clonal genetic alterations are the hallmark of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) and govern the risk stratification, response to treatment and clinical outcome. In this retrospective study conducted on ALL patient samples, the purpose was to estimate the copy number alterations (CNAs) in ALL by digitalMLPA (dMLPA), validation of the dMLPA data by conventional MLPA and RT-PCR, and correlation of CNAs with Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) status. The ALL patient samples ( n = 151; B-ALL, n = 124 cases and T-ALL, n = 27 cases) were assessed for CNAs by dMLPA for detection of sub-microscopic CNAs and ploidy status...

The aim of this study was to assess the performance of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) in identifying the copy number profiles of the three key peritoneal mesothelioma tumor suppressor genes BAP1, CDKN2A, and NF2, with particular emphasis on minute homozygous deletions, a copy number abnormality recently unveiled at the 3p21 (BAP1) chromosomal region using high-throughput methods. FISH was performed on 75 formalin-fixed-paraffin-embedded peritoneal mesotheliomas and recognized two types of monoallelic loss (monosomy, and hemizygous deletion) and two types of biallelic loss (canonical homozygous deletion with a complete loss of FISH signal and homozygous deletion with diminished signal)...

H2AX safeguards genomic stability in a dose-dependent manner; however, mechanisms governing its proteostasis are poorly understood. Here, we identify a PRMT5-RNF168-SMURF2 cascade that regulates H2AX proteostasis. We show that PRMT5 sustains the expression of RNF168, an E3 ubiquitin ligase essential for DNA damage response (DDR). Suppression of PRMT5 occurs in methylthioadenosine phosphorylase (MTAP)-deficient glioblastoma cells and attenuates the expression of RNF168, leading to destabilization of H2AX by E3 ubiquitin ligase SMURF2...

Body site is highly relevant for melanoma: it affects prognosis and varies according to the patient's sex. The distribution of naevi, a major risk factor for melanoma, at different body sites also varies according to sex in childhood. Using naevus counts at different body sites in 492 unrelated adults from both sexes, we observed that women have an increased number of naevi on the lower limbs compared to men (P=8.5x10-5 ), showing that a high naevus count on this site persists from childhood throughout life...

Malignant transformation of intracranial epidermoid cysts is a rare occurrence. We present the second case of such an event occurring in the pineal region and the first case sent for detailed genomic profiling. MRI demonstrated two lesions: a cyst in a quadrigeminal cistern with restricted diffusion on DWI-weighted images and an adjacent, peripherally enhancing tumor with cerebellar infiltration. Both the lesions were completely resected with a small residual of the epidermoid cyst. The final pathology of both lesions was consistent with epidermoid cyst and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), respectively...

Type I protein arginine methyltransferases (PRMTs) catalyze asymmetric dimethylation of arginines on proteins. Type I PRMTs and their substrates have been implicated in human cancers, suggesting inhibition of type I PRMTs may offer a therapeutic approach for oncology. The current report describes GSK3368715 (EPZ019997), a potent, reversible type I PRMT inhibitor with anti-tumor effects in human cancer models. Inhibition of PRMT5, the predominant type II PRMT, produces synergistic cancer cell growth inhibition when combined with GSK3368715...

Codeletions of gene loci containing tumor suppressors and neighboring metabolic enzymes present an attractive synthetic dependency in cancers. However, the impact that these genetic events have on metabolic processes, which are also dependent on nutrient availability and other environmental factors, is unknown. As a proof of concept, we considered panels of cancer cells with homozygous codeletions in CDKN2a and MTAP , genes respectively encoding the commonly-deleted tumor suppressor p16 and an enzyme involved in methionine metabolism...

Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) gene, a tumor suppressor gene located on chromosome 22q12.2, is frequently abnormal in mesothelioma. Recent studies have revealed the effectiveness of diagnostic assays for differentiating malignant pleural mesothelioma from reactive mesothelial hyperplasia. These include detection of homozygous deletion of the 9p21 locus by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) (9p21 FISH), loss of expression of BAP1 as detected by immunohistochemistry, and loss of expression of methylthioadenosine phosphorylase (MTAP) as detected by immunohistochemistry...

Ancillary studies facilitate accurate diagnosis of morphologically challenging mesothelial proliferations. The current diagnostic algorithm proceeds from BAP1 immunohistochemistry to CDKN2A fluorescence in situ hybridization. While MTAP immunohistochemistry has recently shown promise as a surrogate for CDKN2A fluorescence in situ hybridization, it has been examined in only a few single-institution studies. Furthermore, there are no published reports on interobserver agreement or interlaboratory reproducibility for MTAP immunohistochemistry...

Background The Multidimensional Task Ability Profile (MTAP) is a patient-reported outcome (PRO) measure that provides a global score linked to the physical demand characteristics of work, but needs to be validated against established measures. Purpose To assess the concurrent validity of the MTAP compared with the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), Neck Disability Index (NDI), Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand (DASH), Lower Extremity Functional Scale (LEFS), and Short Form 12 Health-Related Quality of Life (SF-12) questionnaires...

Here we present and describe data on homozygous deletions (HD) of human CDKN2 A and neighboring regions on the p arm of Chromosome 9 from cancer genome sequences deposited on the online Catalogue of Somatic Mutations in Cancer (COSMIC) database. Although CDKN2 A HDs have been previously described in many cancers, this is a pan-cancer report of these aberrations with the aim to map the distribution of the breakpoints. We find that HDs of this locus have a median range of 1,255,650bps. When the deletion breakpoints were mapped on both the telomere and centromere proximal sides of CDKN2A, most of the telomere proximal breakpoints concentrate to a narrow region of the chromosome which includes the gene MTAP...

Homozygous deletion of methylthioadenosine phosphorylase (MTAP) is one of the most frequent genetic alterations in glioblastoma (GBM), but its pathologic consequences remain unclear. In this study, we report that loss of MTAP results in profound epigenetic reprogramming characterized by hypomethylation of PROM1/CD133-associated stem cell regulatory pathways. MTAP deficiency promotes glioma stem-like cell (GSC) formation with increased expression of PROM1/CD133 and enhanced tumorigenicity of glioblastoma cells and is associated with poor prognosis in GBM patients...

Endodontic revascularization is based on cell recruitment into the necrotic root canal of immature teeth after chemical disinfection. The clinical outcome depends on the ability of surviving cells from the apical tissue to differentiate and promote hard tissue deposition inside the dentinal walls. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of calcium hydroxide (CH) and modified triple antibiotic paste (mTAP - ciprofloxacin, metronidazole and cefaclor) on the viability and mineralization potential of apical papilla cells (APC) in vitro ...

Background We previously showed that intracranial aneurysm ( IA )-associated single-nucleotide polymorphisms are enriched in promoters and putative enhancers identified in the human circle of Willis, on which IA s develop, suggesting a role for promoters and enhancers in IAs . We further investigated the role of putative enhancers in the pathogenesis of IA by identifying their potential target genes and validating their regulatory activity. Methods and Results Using our previously published circle of Willis chromatin immunoprecipitation and sequencing data, we selected 34 putative enhancers in IA -associated regions from genome-wide association studies...

PRMT5 is an arginine methyltransferase that accounts for the vast majority of the symmetric methylation in cells. PRMT5 exerts its function when complexed with MEP50/WDR77. This activity is often elevated in cancer cells and correlates with poor prognosis, making PRMT5 a therapeutic target. To investigate the PRMT5 signaling pathway and to identify genes whose loss-of-function sensitizes cancer cells to PRMT5 inhibition, we performed a CRISPR/Cas9 genetic screen in the presence of a PRMT5 inhibitor. We identified known components of the PRMT5 writer/reader pathway including PRMT5 itself, MEP50/WDR77, PPP4C, SMNDC1 and SRSF3...

OBJECTIVE: Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is an aggressive neoplasm with poor prognosis. Loss of BRCA-associated protein 1 (BAP1) protein expression as detected by immunohistochemistry (IHC) and homozygous deletion (HD) of the 9p21 locus as detected by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) permits differentiation of MPM from reactive mesothelial hyperplasia (RMH). We have previously reported that detecting the loss of methylthioadenosine phosphorylase (MTAP) using IHC is a surrogate assay for 9p21 FISH...

Bacterial 5'-methylthioadenosine/S-adenosylhomocysteine nucleosidase (MTAN) catalyzes the hydrolysis of adenine from S-methyl-5'-thioadenosine (MTA) and S-adenosyl L-homocysteine (SAH) to form S-methyl-5'-thioribose (MTR) and S-ribosyl-L-homocysteine (SRH), respectively. The MTANs are involved in quorum sensing pathways and hydrolyze MTA to metabolites for recycling to S-adenosylmethionine (SAM). A few bacterial species use the futalosine pathway for menaquinone synthesis and in these, MTAN catalyzes an essential step, making it a candidate for species-specific antibiotic development...
