Study Description

Eccrine porocarcinoma (EP) is the most common form of sweat gland malignancy. The aetiology of EP is largely unknown. The current lack of data on somatic mutation patterns in EP hampers the development of effective therapies. We performed whole-exome sequencing in a well-characterized sample of 14 matched EP tumour/healthy surrounding tissue samples. Mutational profiling revealed a high overall median mutation rate. This was attributed to signatures of mutational processes related to ultraviolet (UV) exposure, APOBEC enzyme dysregulation, and defective homologous double-strand break repair. All of these processes cause genomic instability and are implicated in carcinogenesis. The analyses revealed alterations in the cancer driver genes and in crucial oncogenic pathways.
