Abstract

Combined analysis of gene expression array data and array-based comparative genomic hybridization data have been used in a series of 26 pediatric brain tumors to define up- and downregulated genes that coincide with losses, gains, and amplifications involving specific chromosome regions. Frequent losses were defined in chromosome arms 3q, 6q, 8p, 10q, 16q, 17p, and gains were identified in chromosome 7, and chromosome arms 9p and 17q. Amplification of a 2p region was seen in only one tumor, which corresponded to increased expression of the MYCN and DDX1 genes. To facilitate the analysis of the two data sets, we have developed a custom overlay tool that defines genes that are underexpressed in regions of deletions and overexpressed in regions of gain, across the genome and specifically within regions showing recurrent involvement in medulloblastomas.
