Analysis of copy number variation (CNV) in pacientes of a family with men 2A and P.G533C mutation in the RET gene: identification of CNV regions associated with genesis and progression of medullary thyroid carcinoma

Abstract

The medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) is a carcinoma that is originated from thyroid C cells and occurs either as a sporadic (SMTC) or hereditary (HMTC) form. The hereditary form can occurs as the only clinical feature (familial MTC) or as the thyroid manifestation of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN 2) syndromes (MEN 2A and MEN 2B). The hereditary form can be inherited in an autosomal dominant manner and is caused by germline mutation in the RET gene. Our group identified a new RET mutation (p.G533C) in a family with MEN 2A. Clinical heterogeneity was observed among the p.G533C-carries, mainly associated with tumor aggressiveness. The present work aim to investigate whether Loss of Heterozigosis (LOH), present in the constitutional DNA, is associated with higher predisposition to lymph node metastasis, one of the factors associated with worse prognosis and aggressiveness of MTC. To this end, constitutional DNA of fifteen p.G533C-carriers with MTC were divided into two groups according to presence of lymph node metastasis (n=8) and absence of lymph node metastasis (n=12). DNA from peripheral blood was extracted by phenol/chloroform method, and its integrity evaluated on agarose gel. In addition, we aim to investigate CNVs and LOH are associated with genesis of MTC and C-cell hyperplasia (CCH), a precursor lesion to hereditary MTC. To this end, we will evaluate DNA isolated from CCH (n=5) and MTC (n=5) samples and constitutional DNA form same patients (n=10) will be analyzed. DNA samples were independently analyzed by Genome-Wide Human SNP Array 6.0 platform and the result was evaluated using Nexus Copy Number, Tumor Aberration Prediction Suite (TAPS) e PennCNV. The CNV identified will be validated by quantitative PCR and correlated with clinical and pathological features. We believe that our findings can contribute to better understand the genesis and/or progression of hereditary MTC. (AU)
