Slit-Robo Signaling Links to Ras Activity to Suppress Metastasis and Is Associated with Time-to-Progression in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #1539

Introduction: mRNA signatures of distinct metastatic phenotypes of pancreatic NETs (pNETs) exhibit differences in several components of the Slit-Robo axon guidance system.
Aim(s): We aimed at delineating the role of Slit-Robo signaling for tumor progression in pNETs.
Materials and methods: Expression of Slit2 and Robo1 on human pNET tissues was determined by IHC and qPCR. Migration and colony formation as well as metastasis in mice were evaluated as read-outs.

#770 The Axon Guidance Molecules Slit2 and Robo Control Motility and Growth of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Cells
Introduction: Dense vascularization and high frequency of metastasis in pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNET) suggest a central role for the interaction of tumor cells and vessels. Slit2 and its receptors Robo1 and Robo4 act as guidance cues in neurogenesis, angiogenesis and epithelial morphogenesis, and hence represent attractive candidate regulators at the tumor cell/stroma interface.

#856 DAXX and ATRX Loss Defines Chromosomal Instability and Poor Outcome in Pancreatic NET
Introduction: Chromosomal Instability (CIN) has been reported in pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) with poor outcome. However, no specific genetic background has been associated with CIN. Whole exome sequencing revealed mutations in DAXX (Death domain associated protein gene) and ATRX (ATR-X gene) in 40% of pNETs. DAXX and ATRX mutations in pNETs are associated with Alternative Lengthening of Telomeres (ALT) activation.
