Transcription profiling by array of patient derived pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma xenograft models

ABSTRACT: We generated novel patient derived xenograft (PDX) and cell line -derived xenograft models for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) which reflect different molecular subtypes. Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma is currently the tumor with the fourth highest mortality rate. Recently, subtypes of PDAC have been reported by Collisson et al (Nat. Med. 17(4) 2011. DOI: 10.1038/nm.2344). However current fetal calf serum (FCS) cultured cell lines do not accurately model these subtypes. We thus generated novel serum-free cell lines derived from primary patient xenografts. We here analyse the gene-expression profiles of the xenografts and the derived cell lines. We show that indeed three different subtypes can be separated in our models based on gene-expression data. Further, we identify upregulation of a drug-detoxification pathway specifically in xenografts and cell lines of one of the subtypes. These models and data will help to better understand inter-patient heterogeneity in PDAC and identify novel drug targets and diagnostic markers.

Although subtypes of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) have been described, this malignancy is clinically still treated as a single disease. Here we present patient-derived models representing the full spectrum of previously identified quasi-mesenchymal (QM-PDA), classical and exocrine-like PDAC subtypes, and identify two markers--HNF1A and KRT81--that enable stratification of tumors into different subtypes by using immunohistochemistry. Individuals with tumors of these subtypes showed sub  ...[more]
