Peripheral T cell lymphomas are heterogeneous neoplasms of post thymic T cells with distinct clinical, pathological and genetic characteristics. Poor understanding of mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of PTCL contributes to suboptimal diagnostic subcategorization and lack of targeted therapies. Our research laboratory leverages large scale mass spectrometry-based proteomic, phosphoproteomic and genomic analyses to identify novel signaling pathways regulated by oncogenic fusion kinases in lymphoma.  Utilizing this strategy, we previously identified the NPM::TYK2 fusion in patients with CD30+ lymphoproliferative disorders, including 15% of primary cutaneous ALK- anaplastic large cell lymphoma. Notably, genetic alterations of TYK2 had not been reported in human cancer Subsequently, recurrent fusions targeting kinase-driven TYK2 have been corroborated and observed in other subtypes of T-cell lymphomas implicating its candidacy as an oncogenic kinase. The unequivocal rigorous scientific authentication as a de facto oncogenic driver in vivo has yet to be demonstrated.   The oncogenicity of NPM1::TYK2 and its effect on T cell differentiation, the molecular mechanisms and signaling pathways through which it drives lymphomagenesis in vivo remain unknown.  In this presentation, the proteogenomic strategy for the discovery of the novel TYK2 fusion and subsequent studies to investigate the oncogenic function of TYK2 fusions in lymphoma will be discussed.
