TUMOR PREDISPOSITION SYNDROME

Common Name(s)

TUMOR PREDISPOSITION SYNDROME

This tumor predisposition syndrome is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern. Individuals carrying heterozygous BAP1 mutations are at high-risk for the development of a variety of tumors, including benign melanocytic tumors as well as several malignant tumors, including uveal melanoma ({155720}), cutaneous melanoma ({155600}), malignant mesothelioma on exposure to asbestos ({156240}), and other cancer types, such as lung adenocarcinoma, meningioma, and renal cell carcinoma (summary by {4:Wiesner et al., 2011}, {3:Testa et al., 2011}, {1:Abdel-Rahman et al., 2011}, and {2:Popova et al., 2013}).

DICER1 mutations in embryonal rhabdomyosarcomas from children with and without familial PPB-tumor predisposition syndrome.
 

Author(s): Leslie Doros, Jiandong Yang, Louis Dehner, Christopher T Rossi, Kerry Skiver, Jason A Jarzembowski, Yoav Messinger, Kris Ann Schultz, Gretchen Williams, Nicolas André, D Ashley Hill

Journal: Pediatr Blood Cancer. 2012 Sep;59(3):558-60.

 

Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma (ERMS) is the most common childhood sarcoma and is a component of the familial pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB)-predisposition syndrome. Using the PPB model, we hypothesized that DICER1 mutations would be found in familial and sporadic forms of ERMS. Blood ...

Germline nonsense mutation and somatic inactivation of SMARCA4/BRG1 in a family with rhabdoid tumor predisposition syndrome.
 

Author(s): Reinhard Schneppenheim, Michael C Frühwald, Stefan Gesk, Martin Hasselblatt, Astrid Jeibmann, Uwe Kordes, Markus Kreuz, Ivo Leuschner, Jose Ignacio Martin Subero, Tobias Obser, Florian Oyen, Inga Vater, Reiner Siebert

Journal: Am. J. Hum. Genet.. 2010 Feb;86(2):279-84.

 

Rhabdoid tumors of early infancy are highly aggressive with consequent poor prognosis. Most cases show inactivation of the SMARCB1 (also known as INI1 and hSNF5) tumor suppressor, a core member of the ATP-dependent SWI/SNF chromatin-remodeling complex. Familial cases, described as ...

Comprehensive review of BAP1 tumor predisposition syndrome with report of two new cases.
 

Author(s): K Rai, R Pilarski, C M Cebulla, M H Abdel-Rahman

Journal: Clin. Genet.. 2016 Mar;89(3):285-94.

 

The BRCA1-associated protein-1 (BAP1) tumor predisposition syndrome (BAP1-TPDS) is a recently identified hereditary cancer syndrome. Germline mutations in this tumor suppressor gene predispose families to the development of various malignancies. The molecular functions of the gene ...
