Pathways and genes mutated in DSRCT. a Network representing the six biological pathways containing protein-encoding mutated genes from our list significantly enriched according to Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA®, Qiagen; Bioinformatics, Redwood City, CA, USA; b Heatmap reporting the 26 mutated genes across the six cases by the three DNA damage response (DDR) network subsets: core, RNA-binding proteins (RBPs), and RNA machinery (either directly or indirectly related). c Heatmap representing the distribution of the 10 mutated genes belonging to the MErT/EMT process across the six cases. The cases are classified into three groups (see coloured vertical bars on the left). Genes with a deleterious mutation are highlighted in bold. Genes belonging to both DDR network and MErT/EMT are marked by an asterisk. Genes are coloured according to the type of mutation. MErT, mesenchymal–epithelial reverse transition; hybrid, hybrid/partial epithelial–mesenchymal transition; EMT, epithelial–mesenchymal transition.
