Molecular Profiling of Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumours (SINETs) Abstract #1227

Introduction: Aberrant DNA methylation plays an role in the pathogenesis of many cancers, however little is known about its role in SINET development.
Aim(s): We report the first unbiased genome-wide DNA methylation analysis of a large cohort of SINET, aiming to identify epimutations specific to SINET which may contribute to tumorigenesis.
Materials and methods: HumanMethylation450 Array analysis was performed on DNA from SINET tumours (n=49) and normal SI (n=21). Publicly available methylation data on >600 intestinal adenocarcinoma was also assessed for comparison. Gene expression was determined using the DASL array on RNA from SI NET tumours (n=32) and normal SI (n=6). Analysis was performed using ChAMP and limma R packages. A Bonferroni adjusted significance threshold of p<0.05 was used throughout.

Introduction: Estimating prognosis of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (PNET) patients remains challenging. Mutation status of DAXX/ATRX/MEN1, histone modification patterns and immunohistochemistry for relevant transcription factors, including PDX1, were recently used to perform subtyping and distinguished two main types, A and B. These subtypes are linked to cell-of-origin and associated with clinical outcome.
