ERG fusion detections were performed by polymerase chain reaction PCR. cDNA was generated using SuperScript IV One-Step RT-PCR System (Applied Biosystems TM, USA). PCR was performed with the primers F: GCTCCTATCACGCCCACCCA and R: TCCTTCCCCAGCCCCAGTAAA to estimate the expression of the ERG gene. As contrast, the expression of the housekeeping gene glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase were detected with primers F: TGCACCACCAACTGCTTAGC, R: GGCATGGACTGTGGTCATGAG. Samples with ERG expression were selected to determine if any samples contained any of the known 5 types of breakpoints for TMPRSS2-ERG fusions. The primers for detection of each breakpoint are listed in Supplementary Table S1.
