E-MTAB-1584 - Genotyping by array of human BIN-67 small cell ovarian carcinoma to investigate genomic stability
Released on 24 September 2013, last updated on 3 June 2014
The biology of small cell ovarian carcinoma of the hypercalcemic type (SCCOHT), which is a rare and aggressive form of ovarian cancer, is poorly understood. Tumourigenicity, in vitro growth characteristics, genetic and genomic anomalies, and sensitivity to standard and novel chemotherapeutic treatments were investigated in the unique SCCOHT cell line, BIN-67, to provide further insight in the biology of this rare type of ovarian cancer. Chromosomal anomalies in BIN-67 cells were inferred using the Infinium? genotyping technology with the HumanHap300-Duo Genotyping BeadChip (Illumina, San Diego, CA, USA). This BeadChip contains about 318,000 genetic markers within approximately a 5 kb median SNP spacing. Genotyping and imaging using BeadStudio Data Analysis software (Illumina, San Diego, CA, USA) were performed at the McGill University and Genome Quebec Innovation Centre (Montreal, QC).
