Genome-wide methylation profiling of sporadic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
ABSTRACT: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNETs) account for 1-3% of all neoplasms of the pancreas. Epigenetic changes seem to be the main drivers of PanNET tumorigenesis. Indeed, the most frequent mutated genes in PanNETs are DAXX (Death domain associated protein 6), ATRX (Transcriptional Regulator ATRX) and MEN1 (menin 1), which are all involved in epigenetic regulation. The objective of the project is to study the epigenetic changes undergoing in PanNETs. Specifically, we aimed at investigating whether do exist biologically important epigenetic differences in PanNET, useful for a clinically relevant classification.
