DNA methylation profiling of clinically aggressive chronic lymphocytic leukemia cases by Illumina 450k arrays

ABSTRACT: Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) stereotyped subsets #6 and #8 include cases expressing unmutated B cell receptor immunoglobulin (BcR IG) (U-CLL). Yet, subset #6 (IGHV1-69/IGKV3-20) is less aggressive compared to subset #8 (IGHV4-39/IGKV1(D)-39) which has the highest risk for Richter’s transformation among all CLL. The underlying reasons for this divergent clinical behavior are not fully elucidated. To gain insight into this issue, here we focused on epigenomic signatures and their links with gene expression, particularly investigating genome-wide DNA methylation profiles in subsets #6 and #8 as well as other U-CLL cases not expressing stereotyped BcR IG using the Illumina 450k methylation arrays. Additionally we analysed the methylation profiles of naive and memory B cell subsets from healthy donors and compared them with those of the CLL cases.
