Title Expression of microRNAs and Protein-coding Genes Associated with Perineural Invasion in Prostate Cancer
Platform organisms Homo sapiens; Mus musculus
Sample organism Homo sapiens
Experiment type Expression profiling by array
Non-coding RNA profiling by array
Expression profiling by high throughput sequencing
Summary BACKGROUND. Perineural invasion (PNI) is the dominant pathway for local invasion in prostate cancer. To date, only few studies have investigated the molecular differences between prostate tumors with PNI and those without it.
METHODS. To evaluate the involvement of both microRNAs and protein-coding genes in PNI, we determined their genome-wide expression with a custom microRNA microarray and Affymetrix GeneChips in 50 prostate adenocarcinomas with PNI and 7 without it. In-situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry was used to validate candidate genes.
RESULTS. Unsupervised classification of the 57 adenocarcinomas revealed two clusters of tumors with distinct global microRNA expression. One cluster contained all non-PNI tumors and a subgroup of PNI tumors. Significance analysis of microarray data yielded a list of microRNAs associated with PNI. At a false discovery rate (FDR) < 10%, 19 microRNAs were higher expressed in PNI tumors than in non-PNI tumors. The most differently expressed microRNA was miR-224. In-situ hybridization showed that this microRNA is expressed by perineural cancer cells. The analysis of protein-coding genes identified 34 transcripts that were differently expressed by PNI status (FDR <10%). These transcripts were down-regulated in PNI tumors. Many of those encoded metallothioneins and proteins with mitochondrial localization and involvement in cell metabolism. Consistent with the microarray data, perineural cancer cells tended to have lower metallothionein expression by immunohistochemistry than nonperineural cancer cells.
CONCLUSIONS. Although preliminary, our findings suggest that alterations in microRNA expression, mitochondrial function, and cell metabolism occur at the transition from a non-invasive prostate tumor to a tumor with PNI.
Keywords: Disease State analysis
Overall design Frozen tumor specimens were obtained from the NCI Cooperative Prostate Cancer Tissue Resource (CPCTR). RNA from these patient, 7 of which had no Perineural invasion, were hybridized to both Affymetrix and miRNA microarrays to explore the underlying molecular events associated with perineural invasion.
