Glioma is recognized to be a highly heterogeneous CNS malignancy, whose diverse cellular composition and cellular interactions have not been well characterized. To gain new clinical- and biological-insights into the genetically-bifurcated IDH1 mutant (mt) vs wildtype (wt) forms of glioma, we integrated data from protein, genomic and MR imaging from ...

PD-1-Associated Gene Expression Signature of Neoadjuvant Trastuzumab-Treated Tumors Correlates with Patient Survival in HER2-Positive Breast Cancer.

William P D Hendricks, Natalia Briones, Rebecca F Halperin, Salvatore Facista, Paul R Heaton, Daruka Mahadevan, Suwon Kim,

The therapeutic HER2-targeting antibody trastuzumab has been shown to elicit tumor immune response in a subset of HER2-positive (HER2+) breast cancer. We performed genomic and immunohistochemical profiling of tumors from eight patients who have completed multiple rounds of neoadjuvant trastuzumabb to identify predictive biomarkers for trastuzumab-elicited tumor immune responses. Immunohistochemistry ... Read more >>

Leveraging Spatial Variation in Tumor Purity for Improved Somatic Variant Calling of Archival Tumor Only Samples.

Rebecca F Halperin, Winnie S Liang, Sidharth Kulkarni, Erica E Tassone, Jonathan Adkins, Daniel Enriquez, Nhan L Tran, Nicole C Hank, James Newell, Chinnappa Kodira, Ronald Korn, Michael E Berens, Seungchan Kim, Sara A Byron,

Archival tumor samples represent a rich resource of annotated specimens for translational genomics research. However, standard variant calling approaches require a matched normal sample from the same individual, which is often not available in the retrospective setting, making it difficult to distinguish between true somatic variants and individual-specific germline variants. ...

BACKGROUND:Significant clinical and research applications are driving large scale adoption of individualized tumor sequencing in cancer in order to identify tumors-specific mutations. When a matched germline sample is available, somatic mutations may be identified using comparative callers. However, matched germline samples are frequently not available such as with archival tissues, ... Read more >>

Integrated genomic analyses reveal frequent TERT aberrations in acral melanoma.

Winnie S Liang, William Hendricks, Jeffrey Kiefer, Jessica Schmidt, Shobana Sekar, John Carpten, David W Craig, Jonathan Adkins, Lori Cuyugan, Zarko Manojlovic, Rebecca F Halperin, Adrienne Helland, Sara Nasser, Christophe Legendre, Laurence H Hurley, Karthigayini Sivaprakasam, Douglas B Johnson, Holly Crandall, Klaus J Busam, Victoria Zismann, Valerie Deluca, Jeeyun Lee, Aleksandar Sekulic, Charlotte E Ariyan, Jeffrey Sosman, Jeffrey Trent,

Genomic analyses of cutaneous melanoma (CM) have yielded biological and therapeutic insights, but understanding of non-ultraviolet (UV)-derived CMs remains limited. Deeper analysis of acral lentiginous melanoma (ALM), a rare sun-shielded melanoma subtype associated with worse survival than CM, is needed to delineate non-UV oncogenic mechanisms. We thus performed comprehensive genomic ... Read more >>

GuiTope: an application for mapping random-sequence peptides to protein sequences.

Rebecca F Halperin, Phillip Stafford, Jack S Emery, Krupa Arun Navalkar, Stephen Albert Johnston,

BACKGROUND: Random-sequence peptide libraries are a commonly used tool to identify novel ligands for binding antibodies, other proteins, and small molecules. It is often of interest to compare the selected peptide sequences to the natural protein binding partners to infer the exact binding site or the importance of particular residues. ... Read more >>

Exploring antibody recognition of sequence space through random-sequence peptide microarrays.

Rebecca F Halperin, Phillip Stafford, Stephen Albert Johnston,

A universal platform for efficiently mapping antibody epitopes would be of great use for many applications, ranging from antibody therapeutic development to vaccine design. Here we tested the feasibility of using a random peptide microarray to map antibody epitopes. Although peptide microarrays are physically constrained to ∼10(4) peptides per array, ... Read more >>

Age-related hearing impairment (ARHI), or presbycusis, is the most prevalent sensory impairment in the elderly. ARHI is a complex disease caused by an interaction between environmental and genetic factors. Here we describe the results of the first whole genome association study for ARHI. The study was performed using 846 cases ... Read more >>

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by progressively disabling impairments in memory, cognition, and non-cognitive behavioural symptoms. Sporadic AD is multifactorial and genetically complex. While several monogenic mutations cause early-onset AD and gene alleles have been suggested as AD susceptibility factors, the only extensively validated susceptibility gene for ... Read more >>

Cognitive dysfunction in NF1 knock-out mice may result from altered vesicular trafficking of APP/DRD3 complex.

Elizabeth A Donarum, Rebecca F Halperin, Dietrich A Stephan, Vinodh Narayanan,

It has been estimated that more than 50% of patients with Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) have neurobehavioral impairments which include attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, visual/spatial learning disabilities, and a myriad of other cognitive developmental problems. The biological mechanisms by which NF1 gene mutations lead to such cognitive deficits are not well ... Read more >>
