ABSTRACT In a multi-institutional collaborative project, 1473 patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) were screened for isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1)/IDH2 mutations: 594 essential thrombocythemia (ET), 421 polycythemia vera (PV), 312 primary myelofibrosis (PMF), 95 post-PV/ET MF and 51 blast-phase MPN. A total of 38 IDH mutations (18 IDH1-R132, 19 IDH2-R140 and 1 IDH2-R172) were detected: 5 (0.8%) ET, 8 (1.9%) PV, 13 (4.2%) PMF, 1 (1%) post-PV/ET MF and 11 (21.6%) blast-phase MPN (P<0.01). Mutant IDH was documented in the presence or absence of JAK2, MPL and TET2 mutations, with similar mutational frequencies. However, IDH-mutated patients were more likely to be nullizygous for JAK2 46/1 haplotype, especially in PMF (P=0.04), and less likely to display complex karyotype, in blast-phase disease (P<0.01). In chronic-phase PMF, JAK2 46/1 haplotype nullizygosity (P<0.01; hazard ratio (HR) 2.9, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.7-5.2), but not IDH mutational status (P=0.55; HR 1.3, 95% CI 0.5-3.4), had an adverse effect on survival. This was confirmed by multivariable analysis. In contrast, in both blast-phase PMF (P=0.04) and blast-phase MPN (P=0.01), the presence of an IDH mutation predicted worse survival. The current study clarifies disease- and stage-specific IDH mutation incidence and prognostic relevance in MPN and provides additional evidence for the biological effect of distinct JAK2 haplotypes.

    ABSTRACT: Mutations of isocitrate dehydrogenase isoform 1 and 2 (IDH1 and IDH2) genes have been identified in glioblastoma and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). However, little is known about the molecular alterations of IDH genes in preleukemic disorders with a propensity to transform to AML. We performed polymerase chain reaction-denaturing high performance liquid chromatography (PCR-DHPLC) followed by direct sequencing to detect IDH mutations in 237 patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs; n=108), myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS; n=22), paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH; n=41), and aplastic anemia (AA; n=66). No IDH1 R132 and IDH2 R172 mutations were identified in the entire cohort, whereas IDH1 G105G allele was detected in 4/108 MPN (3.70%), 2/22 MDS (9.09%), and 2/41 PNH (4.88%) patients. Three IDH2 R140Q mutations were found in 2/108 MPN (1.85%) and 1/22 MDS (4.54%) patients, while one IDH2 G145G allele was found in 0.92% (1/108) of MPN patients. Overall, our data suggest that IDH mutations are rare in the preleukemic disorders and may not be the major initial step in AML leukemogenesis. Copyright © 2014 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a heterogeneous cluster of clonal hematopoietic neoplasms manifested by peripheral cytopenias, lineage dysplasia, and a predisposition to acute myeloid leukemia. The pathophysiology of MDS has not been well illustrated. Nevertheless, studies have implicated the MDS phenotype in a broad spectrum of genetic abnormalities. In addition to the known numerical and structural chromosomal abnormalities, with novel genomic sequencing technologies, approximately 80% of MDS patients have been shown to harbor somatic or acquired gene mutations. The mutations have been found to be related to RNA slicing, transcription regulation, DNA methylation, histone modification, DNA repair/tumor suppressor, signal transduction, and the cohesion complex. The clinical significance of the majority of genetic events has been validated based on a large cohort study that identified mutations as predictors for risk stratification in MDS patients and biomarkers for potential targeted therapies. In this review, we describe all novel key mutations in MDS and their significance in pathophysiology and clinical practice. Copyright © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: Cancer is caused by multiple genetic alterations within cells. Recently, large-scale sequencing has identified frequent ribonuclease type III (DICER1), CCCTC-binding factor (CTCF), ribosomal protein L22 (RPL22), DNA (cytosine-5-)-methyltransferase 3α (DNMT3A), transformation/transcription domain-associated protein (TRRAP), isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH)1 and IDH2 hotspot mutations in diverse types of cancer. However, it remains largely unknown whether these mutations also exist in ovarian carcinomas. In the present study, a collection of 251 patients with distinct subtypes of ovarian carcinomas were recruited and sequenced for the presence of these hotspot mutations. However, no mutations in the seven genes were detected in the samples. These negative results, together with certain recent reports, indicate that the hotspot mutations in the CTCF, RPL22, DNMT3A, TRRAP, IDH1 and IDH2 genes may not be actively involved in the carcinogenesis of ovarian carcinoma. Of note, the DICER1 mutation frequency in Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor in the present study was significantly lower compared to prior observation, and therefore, it is speculated that this discrepancy may be mainly due to the small sample size analyzed in the study. In addition, among these samples, frequent polymerase (DNA directed) ε, catalytic subunit (POLE1) and ring finger protein 43 (RNF43) mutations were identified in endometrioid and mucinous ovarian carcinomas, respectively; thus DICER1, CTCF, RPL22, DNMT3A, TRRAP, IDH1 and IDH2 hotspot mutations may not play synergistic roles with POLE1 or RNF43 mutations in the carcinogenesis of endometrioid or mucinous ovarian carcinomas.
