Gene expression and alternative splicing in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) [exon level]

ABSTRACT: Alternative splicing is a key event to human transcriptome and proteome diversity and complexity. Recent evidence suggests that pancreatic cancer might possess particular patterns of splice variation that influence the function of individual genes contributing to tumour progression in this disease. The identification of new pancreatic cancer-associated splice variants would offer opportunities for novel diagnostics and potentially also represent novel therapeutic targets. In this dataset, we investigated the alterations in the splicing machinery in pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC) specimens with full clinicopathological details, in comparisons to adjacent pancreatic tissues and normal tissues from donors. Overall design: We extracted total RNA from 28 PDAC specimens, 4 adjacent tissues and 2 normal pancreatic tissues from donors, and hybridized them to Affymetrix exon arrays. Affymetrix GeneChip® Human Exon 1.0 ST Arrays (Affymetrix, Santa Clara, CA, USA) were used for gene expression and alternative splicing analysis. Labelling and hybridization were performed according to the manufacturer's instructions. After scanning, .CEL files were checked for quality and analysed following the pipeline based on aroma.affymetrix R package, to produce transcript, probeset and probe-level intensities. This was followed by intensity filtering as recommended by Affymetrix. This submission includes the exon-level analysis.

Despite a wealth of genomic information, a comprehensive alternative splicing (AS) analysis of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has not been performed yet. In the present study, we assessed whole exome-based transcriptome and AS profiles of 43 pancreas tissues using Affymetrix exon array. The AS analysis of PDAC indicated on average two AS probe-sets (ranging from 1-28) in 1,354 significantly identified protein-coding genes, with skipped exon and alternative first exon being the most freq  ...[more]
