Study Description

T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) is an aggressive leukemia that is most frequent in children and is characterized by the presence of few chromosomal rearrangements and 10 to 20 somatic mutations in protein-coding regions at diagnosis. The majority of T-ALL cases harbor activating mutations in NOTCH1 together with mutations in genes implicated in kinase signaling, transcriptional regulation or protein translation. To obtain more insight in the level of clonal heterogeneity at diagnosis and during treatment, we used single-cell targeted DNA sequencing with the Tapestri platform. We designed a custom ALL panel and obtained accurate single-nucleotide variant and small insertion-deletion mutation calling for 305 amplicons covering 110 genes in about 4400 cells per sample and time point. A total of 108,188 cells were analyzed for 25 samples of 8 T-ALL patients. We typically observed a major clone at diagnosis (>35% of the cells) accompanied by several minor clones of which some were less than 1% of the total number of cells. Four patients had >2 NOTCH1 mutations some of ... (Show More)

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
This dataset contains the raw fastq-files and the VCF files of single cell targeted DNA sequening with the MissionBio Tapestri platform. This was performed on 8 male pediatric T-ALL cases: X09-XB37-XB47-XD83-XF91-XF97-XF100-XF121. For some patients we have timepoints during treatment: XF100 and XG121. XD83 is a patient that relapsed twice.
Illumina NovaSeq 6000 48
This dataset contains single cell DNA amplicon sequencing of 12 B-ALL patients. For all patients a diagnosis sample was processed, while 4 patients were also followed up during treatment, summing up to a total of 23 samples. Mutations were called in the predefined set of amplicons.
