Study Description

Angiosarcomas are rare, clinically-aggressive tumors with a predilection for the elderly and immunosuppressed, which has incited suspicion of an oncogenic virus. We studied the metagenomic landscape of angiosarcomas and identified reads mapping to human herpesvirus-7 (HHV-7). Overall, HHV-7 was present in two-thirds of angiosarcomas, particularly in cases with low tumor mutation burden and lacking signatures of ultraviolet-induced DNA damage. Transcriptomic profiling revealed the enrichment of tumor inflammation signatures in HHV7-positive angiosarcomas. In conclusion, we identified a distinct “inflammatory” subtype of angiosarcoma associated with HHV-7.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) was performed for 13 pairs of tumor-normal and 5 tumor-only samples from patients diagnosed with angiosarcoma. Genomic DNA from tumor tissue was extracted with QIAamp DNA Mini Kit. The DNA for the matching normal was obtained from blood or buccal swabs and purified by Blood and Cell Culture DNA Mini kit or E.Z.N.A. Tissue DNA Kit (Omega Bio-tek) according to manufacturer’s instructions. The quantity and quality were assessed by Quant-iT PicoGreen dsDNA Assay Kit ... (Show More)
HiSeq X Ten,Illumina HiSeq 2000 31
Whole-transcriptome sequencing (WTS) of 6 tumor-normal and 6 tumor-only samples from patients diagnosed with angiosarcoma. Total RNA from snap frozen EITL tumor samples was extracted using TRIzol (Invitrogen) and purified with RNeasy Mini Kit (Qiagen) according to manufacturer’s instructions. The integrity of RNA was determined by electrophoresis using 2100 Bioanalyzer (Agilent Technologies). 500 ng of total RNA was reverse transcribed with iScript cDNA Synthesis Kit (Bio-Rad, Hercules, CA, ...
