I. Introduction
Perturbed genotypes in cancer can now be identified by whole genome sequencing of large number of diverse tumor samples, and observed gene
mutations can be used for prognosis and classification of cancer subtypes. Although mutations in a few causative genes are directly linked to key
signaling pathways perturbation, a global understanding of how known cancer genes drive oncogenesis in human is difficult to assess. Here we have
mapped inter-connections between 116 cancer census gene products associated with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
II. Materials
Combining protein-protein interactions data and specific gene mutations information, we highlighted exclusive and co-existested genetic alterations in
key signaling pathways including the Notch, AKT and JAK pathways. We observed that 54% of ALL census genes products are inter-connected and
identified 189 (162 LCI, 27 Y2H) human proteins interacting with at least 2 ALL census genes products, which were not previously linked to ALL via
mutations. Finally, we showed that EXT1, a tumor suppressor implicated in chondrosarcomagenesis, is a common interactor of Notch1 and FBW7. We
speculate that EXT1 is a novel ALL cancer gene controlling Notch1 activity in an FBW7-dependend manner.
