Genome-wide DNA methylation profiling of Acute Myeloid Leukemia


ABSTRACT: We hypothesized that DNA methylation distributes into specific patterns in cancer cells, which reflect critical biological differences. We therefore examined the methylation profiles of 344 patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Clustering of these patients by methylation data segregated patients into 16 groups. Five of these groups defined new AML subtypes that shared no other known feature. In addition, DNA methylation profiles segregated patients with CEBPA aberrations from other subtypes of leukemia, defined four epigenetically distinct forms of AML with NPM1 mutations, and showed that established AML1-ETO, CBFb-MYH11 and PML-RARA leukemia entities are associated with specific methylation profiles. We report a 15-gene methylation classifier predictive of overall survival in an independent patient cohort (p<0.001, adjusted for known covariates). Keywords: DNA methylation profiling DNA methylation profiling of a cohort of 344 AML patients from Erasmus Medical Center and enrolled in clinical trials from the Dutch-German cooperative group HOVON. Additionally, a control group consisting of 8 CD34+ bone marrow samples from healthy donors was also studied.
