Study Description

We performed massively parallel whole exome sequencing of 55 primary tumor samples from patients with diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and matched normal tissue. We identified recurrent mutations in genes that are well known to be functionally relevant in DLBCL, as well as in genes for which a functional role in DLBCL has not been previously suspected. Significantly mutated genes include MYD88, CARD11, EZH2, CREBBP, as well as MEF2B, MLL2, BTG1, GNA13, ACTB, P2RY8, PCLO and TNFRSF14. Analysis of somatic mutations in patients with DLBCL also revealed that BCL2 mutations commonly occur in patients with BCL2/IgH rearrangements as a result of somatic hypermutation normally occurring at the IgH locus. The BCL2 point mutations are primarily synonymous, likely caused by AID-mediated somatic hypermutation, and those non-synonymous mutations that are observed tend to be found outside of the functionally important BH domains of the protein, suggesting that strong negative selection against BCL2 loss-of-function mutations is at play. We further identified genes with mutations that are ... (Show More)
