Primary central nervous system (pCNS) posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) is a complication of solid organ transplantation characterized by poor outcome. In contrast to systemic PTLD, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-association of pCNS PTLD is almost universal, yet viral and cellular data are limited. To identify differences in the pattern of EBV-association of pCNS and systemic PTLD, we analyzed the expression of latent and lytic EBV transcripts and the viral and cellular microRNAome in nine pCNS (eight EBV-associated) and in 16 systemic PTLD samples (eight EBV-associated). Notably although 15/16 EBV-associated samples exhibited a viral type III latency pattern, lytic transcripts were also strongly expressed. Members of the ebv-miR-BHRF1 and ebv-miR-BART clusters were expressed in virtually all EBV-associated PTLD samples. There were 28 cellular microRNAs differentially expressed between systemic and pCNS PTLD. pCNS PTLD expressed lower hsa-miR-199a-5p/3p and hsa-miR-143/145 (implicated in nuclear factor kappa beta and c-myc signaling) as compared to systemic PTLD. Unsupervised nonhierarchical clustering of the viral and cellular microRNAome distinguished non-EBV-associated from EBV-associated samples and identified a separate group of EBV-associated pCNS PTLD that displayed reduced levels of B cell lymphoma associated oncomiRs such as hsa-miR-155, -21, -221 and the hsa-miR-17-92 cluster. EBV has a major impact on viral and cellular microRNA expression in EBV-associated pCNS PTLD. © Copyright 2014 The American Society of Transplantation and the American Society of Transplant Surgeons.
