TRAF3, a critical regulator of B cell survival, was recently recognized as a tumor suppressor gene in B lymphocytes. Specific deletion of TRAF3 from B lymphocytes leads to spontaneous development of marginal zone lymphomas (MZL) or B1 lymphomas in mice. To identify novel oncogenes and tumor suppressive genes involved in malignant transformation of TRAF3-deficient B cells, we performed a microarray analysis to identify genes differentially expressed in TRAF3-/- mouse splenic B lymphomas. We have identified 160 up-regulated genes and 244 down-regulated genes in TRAF3-/-B lymphomas as compared to littermate control splenocytes. Here we describe the samples, quality control assessment, as well as the data analysis methods in detail for the transcriptomic profiling study. Data are archived at NIH GEO with accession number GSE48818.
