Exon-based clustering of tumor transcriptomes reveals alternative exons associated with metastasis in breast cancer

ABSTRACT: Exonic profiling is an emerging topic in disease-associated transcriptome analysis, but is still facing major limitations. In this study, we performed a microarray-based analysis of the transcriptome at the exon level of mouse primary mammary tumors having different abilities to give rise to metastases. First, we developed a bioinformatics platform and used a stringent algorithm to identify 679 genes with differentially expressed exons in primary tumors of the 4T1 mouse model of mammary tumor progression. We tested 152 alternative exons by RT-PCR and validated 97 of them as being differentially expressed across primary tumors with different metastasis capability. Many of the 679 identified genes are involved in cellular morphology and movement. This analysis not only pointed to genes involved in cellular functions relevant to tumor progression, but also hinted to protein features targeted by variations at the exon level. Second, we developed a novel exon-based clustering analysis of tumor transcriptomes and identified alternative exons associated with the ability of cells to disseminate from primary mammary tumors into the lungs. A large set of these alternatively spliced exons was differentially expressed across normal tissues and/or conserved during evolution. These data indicated that the splicing events identified by comparing primary tumors were not aberrant events. Finally, we demonstrated that a set of differentially expressed variants, which we identified in the murine model, were associated with poor prognosis in a large cohort of breast cancer patients. In conclusion, this approach constitutes a valuable resource for both the understanding and the development of prognosis/diagnosis markers of tumor metastatic potential. Overall design: 12 Total samples were analyzed: 3 x 67NR primary tumors; 3 x 168FARN primary tumors; 3 x 4T07 primary tumors; 3 x 4T1 primary tumors;

In the field of bioinformatics, exon profiling is a developing area of disease-associated transcriptome analysis. In this study, we performed a microarray-based transcriptome analysis at the single exon level in mouse 4T1 primary mammary tumors with different metastatic capabilities. A novel bioinformatics platform was developed that identified 679 genes with differentially expressed exons in 4T1 tumors, many of which were involved in cell morphology and movement. Of 152 alternative exons tested  ...[more]
