Pediatric Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma Whole Exome Sequencing
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
BACKGROUND: Pediatric papillary thyroid carcinoma (PPTC) is distinct from adult-onset disease. Despite higher rates of regional and distal metastases and more frequent recurrence, there is, paradoxically, a highly favourable prognosis. Historically, only 40-50% of childhood PTC are driven by genomic variants common to adult PTC, while the oncogenic drivers in the remainder are unknown. METHODS: Fifty-two PPTCs were genotyped by candidate gene testing, followed, in a subset (n=32), by whole exome (WES) and transcriptome sequencing (RNASeq) to identify oncogenic variants in driver-unknown tumors and to explore gene expression patterns. FINDINGS: Thirty-one tumors (60%) carried variants identified by candidate gene testing, specifically: BRAFV600E(22%), NRASQ61R(2%), RET-CCDC6(19%), RET-NCOA4(15%) and PAX8-PPARG. Among the 21 remaining tumors with negative first-line genotyping, oncogenic variants were identified in 19 (90%). These were enriched with oncogenic fusions, with 11 non-recurrent fusion transcripts identified, including two that had not been previously described: STRN-RET ... (Show More)

Exome libraries from 47 blood and tissue samples were prepared using Agilent SureSelect Human Exome Library Preparation V5 kit and the Agilent Bravo Automation System fExome libraries were pooled and sequenced with the TruSeq SBS sequencing chemistry using a V4 high throughput flowcell on a HiSeq 2500 platform following Illumina’s recommended protocol. Approximately 6-8 gigabases of raw paired end data of 126-bases were generated per exome library.
