We identified germline single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and its subtypes. Using the Affymetrix 500K Mapping array and publicly available genotypes, we identified 18 SNPs whose allele frequency differed (P<1x10-5) between a pediatric ALL population (n=317) and non-ALL controls (n=17,958). Six of these SNPs differed (P≤0.05) in allele frequency among four ALL subtypes. Two SNPs in ARID5B not only differed between ALL and non-ALL groups (rs10821936, P=1.4x10-15, odds ratio[OR]=1.91; rs10994982, P=5.7x10-9, OR=1.62) but also distinguished B-hyperdiploid ALL from other subtypes (rs10821936, P=1.62 x10-5, OR=2.17; rs10994982, P=0.003, OR 1.72). These ARID5B SNPs also distinguished B-hyperdiploid ALL from other subtypes in an independent validation cohort (n=124 children with ALL) (P=0.003 and P=0.0008, OR 2.45 and 2.86, respectively) and were associated with methotrexate accumulation and gene expression pattern in leukemic lymphoblasts. We conclude that germline genomic variations affect susceptibility to and characteristics of specific ALL subtypes. We used microarrays to detail the global program of gene expression in primary leukemic blasts cells from children diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
