Glioma patients whose tumors carry a mutation in the Isocitrate Dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1R132H) gene are younger at the time of diagnosis and survive longer. The molecular glioma subtype which we modelled, harbors IDH1R132H, tumor protein 53 (TP53) and alpha thalassemia/mental retardation syndrome X-linked (ATRX) loss. The impact of IDH1R132H on genomic stability, DNA damage response (DDR) and DNA repair in this molecular glioma subtype is unknown. We discovered that IDH1R132H expression in the genetic context of ATRX and TP53 inactivation: (i) increases median survival (MS), (ii) enhances DDR activity via epigenetic upregulation of Ataxia-telangiectasia mutated (ATM) signaling, and (iii) elicits tumor radioresistance. Pharmacological inhibition of ATM or checkpoint kinase 1 and 2 (CHK1/2), two essential kinases in the DDR pathways, restored tumor radiosensitivity. Translation of these findings for mIDH1 glioma patients could significantly improve the therapeutic efficacy of radiotherapy, and thus have a major impact on patient survival.
