|Outline of Final Research Achievements
To delineate the genetic basis of PCNSL pathogenesis, we performed a comprehensive genetic study. We first analyzed paired tumor/normal DNA from 35 PCNSL cases by whole-exome sequencing (WES). Significantly mutated genes identified by WES and previously known mutational targets in PCNSL and systemic DLBCL were further screened for mutations using SureSelect-based targeted deep sequencing (Agilent) in an extended cohort of PCNSL cases (N = 90). Copy number alterations (CNAs) have been also investigated using SNP array-karyotyping (N =54).
WES, SNP array karyotyping and follow-up targeted sequencing of a large cohort of PCNSL cases revealed the genetic landscape of PCNSL, which were more homogeneous than that of systemic DLBCL, and thought to be involved in activation of constitutive NF-KB/TLR/BCR signaling, escape from immunosurveillance, as well as highly frequent SHMs.
