Exome Sequencing Reveals Frequent Inactivating Mutations in BAP1, ARID1A, and PBRM1 in Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinomas

Through exomic sequencing of 32 intrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas, we discovered frequent inactivating mutations in multiple chromatin remodeling genes (including BAP1, ARID1A, and PBRM1) – mutation in one of these genes occurred in almost half of the carcinomas sequenced. We also identified frequent mutations at previously reported hotspots in genes encoding the metabolic enzymes IDH1 and IDH2 in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas. In contrast, TP53 was the most frequently altered gene in a series of nine gallbladder carcinomas. These studies highlight the importance of dysregulation of chromatin remodeling in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas.
