Aim: Currently, little is known about differences in miRNA expression between KIT/PDGFRA mutant and KIT/PDGFRA wild-type (WT)-SDH deficient gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST). This prompted us to perform an integrated multiple expression profile of miRNA and mRNA, constructing an original miRNA–mRNA regulatory network in KIT/PDGFRA WT-SDH deficient GIST patients. Patients & methods: Analyses were carried out on KIT/PDGFRA mutant versus KIT/PDGFRA WT-SDH deficient GIST. Genome-wide miRNA and gene-expression analysis were performed using Agilent Human miRNA microarray and Affimetrix array, respectively.
