Metadata associated with the published article: Pleomorphic adenomas and mucoepidermoid carcinomas of the breast are underpinned by fusion genes

Summary

This metadata record describes the data generated and analysed in the published article “Pleomorphic adenomas and mucoepidermoid carcinomas of the breast are underpinned by fusion genes”. The data include histologic images, RNA sequencing, Archer FusionPlex sequencing, Sanger sequencing and Fluorescence in situ hybridization data.

The study which generated the data described here investigated whether primary pleomorphic adenomas (PAs) and mucoepidermoid carcinomas (MECs) of the breast would be underpinned by the fusion genes reported to occur in their salivary gland counterparts.

Ethics

Following approval by the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Institutional Review Board (IRB) the authors’ institutions, formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue blocks of three breast PAs and one breast MEC were retrieved from the pathology archives of the authors’ institutions. All samples were anonymized before analysis.
