Study Description

An adolescent patient presented with an alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma made more unique by the presence of a germline RET mutation ordinarily associated with and a known driver of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2A (MEN2A) cancer. To better understand the role of this germline RET mutation in the genetics and phenotypic response of this unique alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma, we performed DNA and RNA sequencing of the patients in addition to functional studies on patient-derived cultures and genetically similar similar cell models.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
Whole exome sequencing of an alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma patient with RET germline mutation and subsequent analysis of potential therapeutic mechanisms associated with the patient's rare germline mutation. Patient sampels were sequenced from an initial biopsy and from a relapse biopsy, in addition to normal blood as the matched normal DNA. RNA sequencing was performed on the relapse sample as initial sample was unable to produce usable RNA for analysis.
