|Title||Molecular correlates of imatinib resistance in gastrointestinal stromal tumors.|

|Abstract Text||Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) commonly harbor oncogenic mutations of the KIT or platelet-derived growth factor alpha (PDGFRA) kinases, which are targets for imatinib. In clinical studies, 75% to 90% of patients with advanced GISTs experience clinical benefit from imatinib. However, imatinib resistance is an increasing clinical problem.One hundred forty-seven patients with advanced, unresectable GISTs were enrolled onto a randomized, phase II clinical study of imatinib. Specimens from pretreatment and/or imatinib-resistant tumors were analyzed to identify molecular correlates of imatinib resistance. Secondary kinase mutations of KIT or PDGFRA that were identified in imatinib-resistant GISTs were biochemically profiled for imatinib sensitivity.Molecular studies were performed using specimens from 10 patients with primary and 33 patients with secondary resistance. Imatinib-resistant tumors had levels of activated KIT that were similar to or greater than those typically found in untreated GISTs. Secondary kinase mutations were rare in GISTs with primary resistance but frequently found in GISTs with secondary resistance (10% v 67%; P = .002). Evidence for clonal evolution and/or polyclonal secondary kinase mutations was seen in three (18.8%) of 16 patients. Secondary kinase mutations were nonrandomly distributed and were associated with decreased imatinib sensitivity compared with typical KIT exon 11 mutations. Using RNAi technology, we demonstrated that imatinib-resistant GIST cells remain dependent on KIT kinase activity for activation of critical downstream signaling pathways.Different molecular mechanisms are responsible for primary and secondary imatinib resistance in GISTs. These findings have implications for future approaches to the growing problem of imatinib resistance in patients with advanced GISTs.|

|KIT||C809G||missense||unknown||KIT C809G lies within the protein kinase domain of the Kit protein (UniProt.org). C809G has been associated with secondary resistance to select KIT inhibitors (PMID: 16954519), but has not been biochemically characterized and therefore, its effect on Kit protein function is unknown (PubMed, Sep 2022).||Y|
|KIT||D820A||missense||gain of function - predicted||KIT D820A lies within the protein kinase domain of the Kit protein (UniProt.org). D820A has been demonstrated to occur as a secondary drug resistance mutation (PMID: 16954519, PMID: 31363162), and results in reduced Kit protein expression and stability, abnormal cellular localization, but constitutive Kit phosphorylation in the absence of Pkc in cell culture (PMID: 27440273), and therefore, is predicted to lead to a gain of Kit protein function.||Y|
|KIT||V560D||missense||gain of function||KIT V560D lies within the juxtamembrane domain (exon 11) of the Kit protein (PMID: 19164557). V560D confers a gain of function to Kit, as indicated by constitutive phosphorylation of Kit in cell culture (PMID: 16954519, PMID: 20633291, PMID: 27440273) despite reduced expression, enhanced degradation, and cellular mislocalization (PMID: 27440273).|
