Transcription profiling by array of human male kidney renal cell adenocarcinoma to investigate the hypoxia responsive pathway

ABSTRACT: VHL is a tumor suppressor gene involved in the oxygen-sensing pathway whose germline mutations predispose to distinct phenotypes. Heterozygous mutations predispose to von Hippel-Lindau disease characterized by the development of multiple tumors (including hemangioblastomas, renal cell carcinomas and pheochromocytomas)1-3. More recently, a specific VHL-R200W mutation was shown to be responsible for Chuvash Polycythemia in homozygous carriers whereas heterozygous individuals have no clinical manifestation4. We report here a family carrying, on the same allele, VHL mutations characteristics of the two types of disease (a Chuvash polycythemia-R200W mutation and a von Hippel-Lindau disease-R161Q mutation). Genotyping, modeling analysis and functional studies, including transcriptomic profile of the distinct mutants validated for the first time on direct HIF target genes, show a gradual capacity of the VHL mutants to regulate the hypoxia responsive pathway that correlate with the severity of the developed phenotype. Our study provide original results that illuminate genotype/phenotype correlations in von Hippel-Lindau disease.

The classic model of tumor suppression implies that malignant transformation requires full "two-hit" inactivation of a tumor-suppressor gene. However, more recent work in mice has led to the proposal of a "continuum" model that involves more fluid concepts such as gene dosage-sensitivity and tissue specificity. Mutations in the tumor-suppressor gene von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) are associated with a complex spectrum of conditions. Homozygotes or compound heterozygotes for the R200W germline mutation  ...[more]
