Study Description

Prostate cancer is a heterogeneous disease whose progression is linked to genome instability. Despite large-scale tumour sequencing efforts, the impact of mutations on the genetic architecture in cancer remains ill-defined due to limited integration of genomics data across dimensions. We addressed this limitation by assessing the impact of structural variants on the chromatin states and the three-dimensional organization across benign and malignant primary prostate genomes. We find high concordance in the three-dimensional genome organization between malignant and benign prostate tissues, arguing for constraints to the three-dimensional genome of prostate tumours. Moreover, we identify structural variants as effectors of changes to focal chromatin interactions, guiding cis-regulatory element hijacking that imposes opposing expression changes on genes found at antipodes of a rearrangement. This leads to the repression of tumour suppressor gene expression and up-regulation of oncogenes, such as at the TMPRSS2-ERG and PMEPA1-ZNF156 loci. Collectively, our results argue that ...

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
This dataset contains the raw sequencing data, in FASTQ format, for Hi-C assays from 17 primary prostate tissue samples. The sequencing data is paired-end, 150 bp sequencing data from an Illumina NovaSeq 6000 machine, and contains 5 benign tissue samples and 12 primary tumour samples from the Canadian Prostate Cancer Genome Network (CPC-GENE) project. Tumour samples have IDs starting with the "CPCG" prefix, and benign tissue samples have IDs starting with the "BP" suffix.
