Histologic and genomic features of breast cancers with alterations affecting the SWI/SNF (SMARC) genes.

Mod Pathol 2021 Jun 2. Epub 2021 Jun 2.

Department of Pathology, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY, USA.

The SWI/SNF family of proteins is a multisubunit ATPase complex frequently altered in human cancer. Inactivating mutations in SWI/SNF-related matrix-associated actin-dependent regulator of chromatin (SMARCs) underpin a subset of tumors such as the malignant rhabdoid tumor and small cell carcinoma of the ovary, hypercalcemic type. Here, we investigated the genotypic and phenotypic characteristics of breast cancers harboring somatic genetic alterations affecting genes of the SMARC family. Read More

Global Chromatin Changes Resulting from Single-Gene Inactivation-The Role of SMARCB1 in Malignant Rhabdoid Tumor.

Cancers (Basel) 2021 May 23;13(11). Epub 2021 May 23.

School of Medicine, Trinity College, University of Dublin, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Human cancer typically results from the stochastic accumulation of multiple oncogene-activating and tumor-suppressor gene-inactivating mutations. However, this process takes time and especially in the context of certain pediatric cancer, fewer but more 'impactful' mutations may in short order produce the full-blown cancer phenotype. This is well exemplified by the highly aggressive malignant rhabdoid tumor (MRT), where the only gene classically showing recurrent inactivation is SMARCB1, a subunit member of the BAF chromatin-remodeling complex.

Pathologic correlation with near infrared-indocyanine green guided surgery for pediatric liver cancer.

J Pediatr Surg 2021 Apr 25. Epub 2021 Apr 25.

Division of Pediatric Surgery, Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery, Texas Children's Surgical Oncology Program, Texas Children's Liver Tumor Program, Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX USA. Electronic address:

Purpose: Hepatoblastoma (HB) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are the most common primary malignant tumors of childhood. Intraoperative indocyanine green (ICG) administration with near-infrared imaging (NIR) has emerged as a surgical technology that can be used to assist with localization of pulmonary metastases secondary to HB; however, there has been limited application as an adjunct for resection of the primary liver tumor and assessment of extrahepatic disease.

Methods: We present 14 patients treated for HB, HCC, and malignant rhabdoid tumor at our institution with the use of intraoperative NIR-ICG guidance. Read More

Inhibition of nuclear export restores nuclear localization and residual tumor suppressor function of truncated SMARCB1/INI1 protein in a molecular subset of atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumors.

Acta Neuropathol 2021 May 18. Epub 2021 May 18.

Institute of Neuropathology, University Hospital Münster, Pottkamp 2, 48149, Münster, Germany.

Loss of nuclear SMARCB1 (INI1/hSNF5/BAF47) protein expression due to biallelic mutations of the SMARCB1 tumor suppressor gene is a hallmark of atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumors (ATRT), but the presence of cytoplasmic SMARCB1 protein in these tumors has not yet been described. In a series of 102 primary ATRT, distinct cytoplasmic SMARCB1 staining on immunohistochemistry was encountered in 19 cases (19%) and was highly over-represented in cases showing pathogenic sequence variants leading to truncation or mutation of the C-terminal part of SMARCB1 (15/19 vs. 4/83; Chi-square: 56.

INSERM, U830, Pediatric Translational Research, PSL Research University, Institut Curie, Paris, France.

Extracranial rhabdoid tumours (ECRT) are an aggressive malignancy of infancy and early childhood. The vast majority of cases demonstrate inactivation of SMARCB1 (ECRT ) on a background of a remarkably stable genome, a low mutational burden, and no other recurrent mutations. Rarely, ECRT can harbour the alternative inactivation of SMARCA4 (ECRT ) instead of SMARCB1. Read More
