Stromal myofibroblasts drive tumorigenesis in Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome polyposis models

ABSTRACT: Germline mutations in LKB1 predispose to hereditary Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome (PJS), manifesting with gastrointestinal polyposis. We discovered that conditional deletion of Lkb1 in stromal fibroblasts using Fsp1-Cre leads to expansion of stromal cells and gastrointestinal polyposis in mice. Here we have investigated gene expression signatures in the Fsp1-Cre;Lkb1fl/fl mouse polyps harbouring bi-allelic deletion of Lkb1 in stromal cells together with wild-type epithelium. We provide RNA-seq gene expression data of 6 polyps, 4 adjacent gastric mucosa samples and 5 wild-type gastric mucosa samples from littermate controls. Our experiment demonstrates e.g. activated cytokine signaling and inflammatory pathways in the polyps.

Germline mutations in the gene encoding tumor suppressor kinase LKB1 lead to gastrointestinal tumorigenesis in Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS) patients and mouse models; however, the cell types and signaling pathways underlying tumor formation are unknown. Here, we demonstrated that mesenchymal progenitor- or stromal fibroblast-specific deletion of Lkb1 results in fully penetrant polyposis in mice. Lineage tracing and immunohistochemical analyses revealed clonal expansion of Lkb1-deficient myofibro  ...[more]
