Abstract The t(14;18) is the most common genetic alteration in follicular lymphoma, and is detectable in a subset of diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBCL), resulting in over-expression of the anti-apoptotic protein BCL-2. Although the t(14;18)-induced over-expression of BCL-2 is an important step in lymphomagenesis, this aberration alone is not sufficient to produce malignant lymphoma. Further analysis of these tumors is needed to identify additional genes that might be involved in the genesis of follicular lymphoma and progression to DLBCL. To address this issue, we analyzed the gene expression profiles of four t(14;18)-positive cell lines and two t(11;14)-positive mantle-cell lymphoma cell lines using cDNA microarrays containing 4364 genes, and compared them to the genetic profile of phenotypically purified B-cells obtained from hyperplastic tonsils. A total of 137 genes were differentially expressed by approximately twofold or more in the t(14;18) cell lines relative to tonsillar B-cells. 68 genes were up-regulated, 69 genes were down-regulated, and approximately 20\% of the differentially regulated genes had no known function. The up-regulated genes included a number of genes involved in the promotion of cellular proliferation and survival, as well as cell metabolism. Down-regulated genes included mediators of cell adhesion and negative regulators of cell activation and growth. Hierarchical clustering analysis separated the t(14;18) and mantle-cell lines into distinct groups based on their gene expression profiles. We confirmed the differential expression of approximately 80\% of selected up- and down-regulated genes identified by microarray analysis by quantitative real-time fluorescence reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) analysis and/or immunoblotting. This study demonstrates the utility of cDNA microarray analysis for the assessment of global transcriptional changes that characterize t(14;18)-positive cell lines, and also for the identification of novel genes that could potentially contribute to the genesis and progression of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas with this translocation.
