[First paragraph] Hepatosplenic T–cell lymphoma (HSTL) is a malignancy with an unfavorable outcome mainly affecting young adults. To discover genes showing altered DNA-methylation in HSTL we performed array-based DNA methylation profiling of HSTL cells from 11 patients and compared the findings to those obtained from purified non-neoplastic ab-positive and gd-positive T cells. The procedure identified 1,339 hypermethylated and 2,774 hypomethylated CpG-loci in HSTL compared to controls. DNA methylation changes in HSTL were enriched for regulatory elements, like enhancers. Considering the top 100 differentially-methylated CpGs from various subset comparisons, we identified eight consistently hypermethylated genes (BCL11B, CD5, CXCR6, GIMAP7, LTA, SEPT9, UBAC2, UXS1) and four consistently hypomethylated genes (ADARB1, NFIC, NR1H3, ST3GAL3) in HSTL.
