    • Here we describe the SweGen data set, a comprehensive map of genetic variation in the Swedish population. These data represent a basic resource for clinical genetics laboratories as well as for sequencing-based association studies by providing information on genetic variant frequencies in a cohort that is well matched to national patient cohorts. To select samples for this study, we first examined the genetic structure of the Swedish population using high-density SNP-array data from a nation-wide cohort of over 10 000 Swedish-born individuals included in the Swedish Twin Registry. A total of 1000 individuals, reflecting a cross-section of the population and capturing the main genetic structure, were selected for whole-genome sequencing. Analysis pipelines were developed for automated alignment, variant calling and quality control of the sequencing data. This resulted in a genome-wide collection of aggregated variant frequencies in the Swedish population that we have made available to the scientific community through the website https://swefreq.nbis.se. A total of 29.2 million single-nucleotide variants and 3.8 million indels were detected in the 1000 samples, with 9.9 million of these variants not present in current databases. Each sample contributed with an average of 7199 individual-specific variants. In addition, an average of 8645 larger structural variants (SVs) were detected per individual, and we demonstrate that the population frequencies of these SVs can be used for efficient filtering analyses. Finally, our results show that the genetic diversity within Sweden is substantial compared with the diversity among continental European populations, underscoring the relevance of establishing a local reference data set.

  • Integrated molecular analysis of undifferentiated uterine sarcomas reveals clinically relevant molecular subtypes
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: Clinical Cancer Research. - : American Association for Cancer Research. - 1078-0432 .- 1557-3265. ; 25:7, s. 2155-2165

    • Purpose: Undifferentiated uterine sarcomas (UUS) are rare, extremely deadly, sarcomas with no effective treatment. The goal of this study was to identify novel intrinsic molecular UUS subtypes using integrated clinical, histopathologic, and molecular evaluation of a large, fully annotated, patient cohort. Experimental Design: Fifty cases of UUS with full clinicopathologic annotation were analyzed for gene expression (n ¼ 50), copy-number variation (CNV, n ¼ 40), cell morphometry (n ¼ 39), and protein expression (n ¼ 22). Gene ontology and network enrichment analysis were used to relate over- and underexpressed genes to pathways and further to clinicopathologic and phenotypic findings. Results: Gene expression identified four distinct groups of tumors, which varied in their clinicopathologic parameters. Gene ontology analysis revealed differential activation of pathways related to genital tract development, extracellular matrix (ECM), muscle function, and proliferation. A multi-variable, adjusted Cox proportional hazard model demonstrated that RNA group, mitotic index, and hormone receptor expression influence patient overall survival (OS). CNV arrays revealed characteristic chromosomal changes for each group. Morphometry demonstrated that the ECM group, the most aggressive, exhibited a decreased cell density and increased nuclear area. A cell density cutoff of 4,300 tumor cells per mm 2 could separate ECM tumors from the remaining cases with a sensitivity of 83% and a specificity of 94%. IHC staining of MMP-14, Collagens 1 and 6, and Fibronectin proteins revealed differential expression of these ECM-related proteins, identifying potential new biomarkers for this aggressive sarcoma subgroup. Conclusions: Molecular evaluation of UUS provides novel insights into the biology, prognosis, phenotype, and possible treatment of these tumors.

  • Different patterns of clonal evolution among different sarcoma subtypes followed for up to 25 years
  • Ingår i: Nature Communications. - : Nature Publishing Group. - 2041-1723. ; 9:1
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • To compare clonal evolution in tumors arising through different mechanisms, we selected three types of sarcoma—amplicon-driven well-differentiated liposarcoma (WDLS), gene fusion-driven myxoid liposarcoma (MLS), and sarcomas with complex genomes (CXS)—and assessed the dynamics of chromosome and nucleotide level mutations by cytogenetics, SNP array analysis and whole-exome sequencing. Here we show that the extensive single-cell variation in WDLS has minor impact on clonal key amplicons in chromosome 12. In addition, only a few of the single nucleotide variants in WDLS were present in more than one lesion, suggesting that such mutations are of little significance in tumor development. MLS displays few mutations other than the FUS-DDIT3 fusion, and the primary tumor is genetically sometimes much more complex than its relapses, whereas CXS in general shows a gradual increase of both nucleotide- and chromosome–level mutations, similar to what has been described in carcinomas.

  • Four evolutionary trajectories underlie genetic intratumoral variation in childhood cancer

    • A major challenge to personalized oncology is that driver mutations vary among cancer cells inhabiting the same tumor. Whether this reflects principally disparate patterns of Darwinian evolution in different tumor regions has remained unexplored1–5. We mapped the prevalence of genetically distinct clones over 250 regions in 54 childhood cancers. This showed that primary tumors can simultaneously follow up to four evolutionary trajectories over different anatomic areas. The most common pattern consists of subclones with very few mutations confined to a single tumor region. The second most common is a stable coexistence, over vast areas, of clones characterized by changes in chromosome numbers. This is contrasted by a third, less frequent, pattern where a clone with driver mutations or structural chromosome rearrangements emerges through a clonal sweep to dominate an anatomical region. The fourth and rarest pattern is the local emergence of a myriad of clones with TP53 inactivation. Death from disease was limited to tumors exhibiting the two last, most dynamic patterns.

  • Genomic and transcriptomic features of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans : Unusual chromosomal origin of the COL1A1-PDGFB fusion gene and synergistic effects of amplified regions in tumor development
  • 2020

    • The dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans family of tumors (DPFT) comprises cutaneous soft tissue neoplasms associated with aberrant PDGFBR signaling, typically through a COL1A1-PDGFB fusion. The aim of the present study was to obtain a better understanding of the chromosomal origin of this fusion and to assess the spectrum of secondary mutations at the chromosome and nucleotide levels. We thus investigated 42 tumor samples from 35 patients using chromosome banding, fluorescence in situ hybridization, single nucleotide polymorphism arrays, and/or massively parallel sequencing (gene panel, whole exome and transcriptome sequencing) methods. We confirmed the age-associated differences in the origin of the COL1A1-PDGFB fusion and could show that it in most cases must arise after DNA synthesis, i.e., in the S or G2 phase of the cell cycle. Whereas there was a non-random pattern of secondary chromosomal rearrangements, single nucleotide variants seem to have little impact on tumor progression. No clear genomic differences between low-grade and high-grade DPFT were found, but the number of chromosomes and chromosomal imbalances as well as the frequency of 9p deletions all tended to be greater among the latter. Gene expression profiling of tumors with COL1A1-PDGFB fusions associated with unbalanced translocations or ring chromosomes identified several transcriptionally up-regulated genes in the amplified regions of chromosomes 17 and 22, including TBX2, PRKCA, MSI2, SOX9, SOX10, and PRAME.

  • Two techniques to sample non-volatiles in breath-exemplified by methadone.

    • The particles in exhaled breath provide a promising matrix for the monitoring of pathological processes in the airways, and also allow exposure to exogenous compounds to be to assessed. The collection is easy to perform and is non-invasive. The aim of the present study is to assess if an exogenous compound-methadone-is distributed in the lining fluid of small airways, and to compare two methods for collecting methadone in particles in exhaled breath. Exhaled particles were collected from 13 subjects receiving methadone maintenance treatment. Two different sampling methods were applied: one based on electret filtration, potentially collecting exhaled particles of all sizes, and one based on impaction, collecting particles in the size range of 0.5-7 μm, known to reflect the respiratory tract lining fluid from the small airways. The collected samples were analyzed by liquid chromatography mass spectrometry, and the impact of different breathing patterns was also investigated. The potential contribution from the oral cavity was investigated by rinsing the mouth with a codeine solution, followed by codeine analysis of the collected exhaled particles by both sampling methods. The results showed that methadone was present in all samples using both methods, but when using the method based on impaction, the concentration of methadone in exhaled breath was less than 1% of the concentration collected by the method based on filtration. Optimizing the breathing pattern to retrieve particles from small airways did not increase the amount of exhaled methadone collected by the filtration method. The contamination from codeine present in the oral cavity was only detected in samples collected by the impaction method. We conclude that methadone is distributed in the respiratory tract lining fluid of small airways. The samples collected by the filtration method most likely contained a contribution from the upper airways/oral fluid in contrast to the impaction method.

  • Effects of pollen season on central and peripheral nitric oxide production in subjects with pollen asthma
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Respiratory Medicine. - 0954-6111. ; 108:9, s. 1277-1283
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background: Pollen exposure of allergic subjects with asthma causes increased nitric oxide (NO) in exhaled air (FENO) suggestive of increased airway inflammation. It is, however, unclear to what extent NO production in peripheral airways and alveoli are involved. Objectives: The aim of the present investigation was to analyze the relationship between central and peripheral components of FENO to clarify the distribution of pollen induced inflammation in asthma. Subjects and methods: 13 pollen allergic non-smoking subjects with mild-intermittent asthma and 12 healthy non-smoking control subjects were examined with spirometry and FENO at flows between 50 and 270 mL/s during and out of pollen season. Results: Spirometry was normal and unaffected by season in subjects with asthma as well as controls. Out of season subjects with asthma had significantly higher FENO, elevated airway production (JawNO) and preacinar/acinar production (CANO) than controls. Pollen exposure resulted in significantly increased FENO and JawNO but not CANO. FENO among controls were not affected by season. Individual results showed, however, that CANO increased substantially in a few subjects with asthma. The increased CANO in subjects with asthma may be explained by increased NO production in preacinar/acinar airways and back diffusion towards the alveoli. Conclusions: The findings may indicate that subjects with allergic asthma have airway inflammation without alveolar involvement outside the pollen season and pollen exposure causes a further increase of airway inflammation and in a few subjects obstruction of intra acinar airways causing impeded back diffusion. Increased NO production in central airways, unassociated with airway obstruction could be an alternative explanation. These effects were not disclosed by spirometry.

  • A Phylometagenomic Exploration of Oceanic Alphaproteobacteria Reveals Mitochondrial Relatives Unrelated to the SAR11 Clade

    • Background: According to the endosymbiont hypothesis, the mitochondrial system for aerobic respiration was derived from an ancestral Alphaproteobacterium. Phylogenetic studies indicate that the mitochondrial ancestor is most closely related to the Rickettsiales. Recently, it was suggested that Candidatus Pelagibacter ubique, a member of the SAR11 clade that is highly abundant in the oceans, is a sister taxon to the mitochondrial-Rickettsiales clade. The availability of ocean metagenome data substantially increases the sampling of Alphaproteobacteria inhabiting the oxygen-containing waters of the oceans that likely resemble the originating environment of mitochondria. Methodology/Principal Findings: We present a phylogenetic study of the origin of mitochondria that incorporates metagenome data from the Global Ocean Sampling (GOS) expedition. We identify mitochondrially related sequences in the GOS dataset that represent a rare group of Alphaproteobacteria, designated OMAC (Oceanic Mitochondria Affiliated Clade) as the closest free-living relatives to mitochondria in the oceans. In addition, our analyses reject the hypothesis that the mitochondrial system for aerobic respiration is affiliated with that of the SAR11 clade. Conclusions/Significance: Our results allude to the existence of an alphaproteobacterial clade in the oxygen-rich surface waters of the oceans that represents the closest free-living relative to mitochondria identified thus far. In addition, our findings underscore the importance of expanding the taxonomic diversity in phylogenetic analyses beyond that represented by cultivated bacteria to study the origin of mitochondria.

  • Lost and Found at Sea: a Phylomentagenomic Exploration of Mitochondrial Affiliations with Oceanic Bacteria.

    •   Background According to the endosymbiont hypothesis, the mitochondrial system for aerobic respiration was derived from a free-living bacterium related to present-day alpha-proteobacteria. Recent studies have identified two lineages as the closest mitochondrial relatives among bacteria with sequenced genomes; the Rickettsiales, a lineage comprising obligate intracellular pathogens, and Pelagibacter ubique, a member of the SAR11 clade that is highly abundant in the upper surface waters of the global oceans.   Principal Findings Here, we present a phylogenetic study incorporating metagenomic data of mitochondrial genes for aerobic respiration that includes sequence data from the Global Ocean Sampling (GOS) Expedition, thereby increasing the sampling of alpha-proteobacterial sequences available for analysis greatly. Phylogenetic analysis of these expanded datasets including oceanic sequences that had been pruned down in numbers but still maintained the full genetic diversity present failed to show an increased support for a specific mitochondrial affiliation to any alpha-proteobacterial group, although concatenated datasets of different genes gave good support for conflicting mitochondrial placement. We utilized a jack-knifing method to randomly sample sequences from the GOS dataset and examined how the inclusion of such sequences influenced the support for mitochondrial affiliation in trees inferred from proteins in aerobic respiration. No evidence of an increased support for a specific mitochondrial placement in the alpha-proteobacterial tree in the jack-knifing analysis was obtained. A systematic search for sequences affiliated with mitochondria in the GOS dataset suggests the existence of previously unidentified clades of deeply diverging alpha-proteobacteria, with an unclear affiliation.   Conclusions/Significance Our findings have several important implications. First, they support an early divergence of the mitochondrial ancestor from the alpha-proteobacterial lineage, possibly pre-dating the radiation of alpha-proteobacterial species with sequenced genomes. Second, they reject the hypothesis that the system for aerobic respiration in mitochondria is affiliated with the SAR11 clade. Third, they indicate horizontal transfer of genes for respiratory chain proteins in bacteria adapted to the upper surface waters of the oceans. Fourth, they show the presence of oceanic sequences for respiratory chain proteins that diverge as deeply as mitochondria in the alpha-proteobacterial phylogeny, possibly indicating a previously unidentified alpha-proteobacterial group at a basal position of the alpha-proteobacterial tree, underscoring the importance of expanding studies on mitochondrial origins beyond those of cultivated and intracellular bacteria. Finally, our study outlines a new methodology, phylometagenomics, which provides guidance on how to incorporate metagenome data into a phylogenetic framework for inferences of early evolutionary events.
