GSE60052: The RNAseq of 79 small cell lung cancer (sclc) and 7 normal control

Bulk RNA sequencing

Even though small cell lung cancer (SCLC) has entered the age of broad genomic analysis, platinum-based chemotherapy remains the standard care for SCLC. Topotecan is the only approved agent for recurrent or progressive SCLC (1). In the absence of well-defined genomic biomarkers, clinical efficacy signals in genomically distinct subsets of SCLC could have been missed. Serine/Arginine Splicing Factor 1 (SRSF1) is a member of SR protein family. The deleterious consequences of overexpression of the SRSF1 proto-oncogene in human cancers suggest that there are complex mechanisms and pathways underlying SRSF1-mediated transformation (2). Whole exome and transcriptome sequencing of primary tumor SCLC from 99 Chinese patients has identified SRSF1 DNA amplification and mRNA over-expression which predicts poor survival in Chinese SCLC patients. In vitro and in vivo studies have demonstrated that SRSF1 is essential for tumorigenecity of SCLC and plays a key role in DNA repair and chemo-sensitivity.
