History

ARTICLE ABSTRACT

Human B-cell lymphomas are frequently associated with specific genetic changes caused by chromosomal translocations that activate proto-oncogenes. For lymphomas of mice expressing murine leukemia virus, mutagenic proviral insertions are thought to play a similar role. Here we report studies designed to determine whether specific retroviral integration sites might be associated with a specific subset of mouse B-cell lymphomas and if the genes associated with these sites are regularly altered in expression. We studied splenic marginal zone lymphomas (MZL) of NFS.V+ mice that are unusual in exhibiting frequent progression from low to high grade, potentially allowing assignment of cancer genes to processes of initiation and progression. We used inverse PCR to clone and analyze 212 retroviral integration sites from 43 MZL at different stages of progression. Sixty-two marked common integration sites and included 31 that had been marked previously. Among the new common integration sites, seven were unique to MZL. Using microarrays and real-time quantitative PCR analysis, we defined differential patterns of gene expression in association with disease progression for Gfi1, Sox4, Brca2, Snf1lk, Nfkb1, Pou2af1, Prdm1, Stat6, and Blnk. Heightened expression of Gfi1 distinguishes MZL from other lymphoma types. The combined use of proviral tagging and analyses of gene expression thus provides a powerful approach to understanding of genes that collaborate in tumorigenesis.
