Study Description

Purpose: To further understand the molecular pathogenesis of desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT), a rare but often fatal malignancy occurring primarily in young males, we used next-generation RNA sequencing to investigate the gene expression profiles intrinsic to this disease.Experimental Design: RNA from DSRCT tumor samples were obtained from the Cooperative Human Tissue Network biorepository. RNA sequencing was completed using the Illumina HiSeq 2000 system. Presence of the EWSR1-WT1 fusion was verified using both RNA-sequencing and PCR. Validation studies, including WT1 ChIP-seq, RNA sequencing, and EWS-WT1 knockdown experiments, were performed on an established DSRCT cell line, JN-DSRCT-1. Protein expression of clinically relevant genes determined by RNA sequencing was confirmed using immunohistochemistry. A panel of immune signature genes was also evaluated to identify possible immune therapeutic targets. Results: We analyzed the RNA from 14 tumor samples, of which two were confirmed negative for the diagnostic EWSR1-WT1 translocation. Principal component analysis of ... (Show More)
