Study Description

Recent efforts reclassified B-Cell Precursor Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (BCP-ALL) into more refined subtypes. Nevertheless, outcomes of relapsed BCP-ALL remain unsatisfactory, particularly in adult patients where the molecular basis of relapse is still poorly understood. To elucidate the evolution of relapse in BCP-ALL, we established a comprehensive multi-omics dataset including DNA-sequencing, RNA-sequencing, DNA methylation array and proteome MASS-spec data from matched diagnosis and relapse samples of BCP-ALL patients (n = 50) including the subtypes DUX4, Ph-like and two aneuploid subtypes. Relapse-specific alterations were enriched for chromatin modifiers, nucleotide and steroid metabolism including the novel candidates FPGS, AGBL and ZNF483. The proteome expression analysis unraveled deregulation of metabolic pathways at relapse including the key proteins G6PD, TKT, GPI and PGD. Moreover, we identified a novel relapse-specific gene signature specific for DUX4 BCP-ALL patients highlighting chemotaxis and cytokine environment as a possible driver event at relapse. This ...

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
Bone marrow mononuclear cells from patients diagnosed with B cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia were obtained at three sequential time points: first diagnosis, remission after chemotherapy and relapse. Genomic DNA was isolated and targeted gene panel sequencing was performed using a customized biotinylated RNA oligo pool (SureSelect, Agilent, Santa Clara, California) to hybridize the target regions comprising 362 kbp on a HiSeq2000. Target regions were selected to validate mutations ... (Show More)
