Isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1)-wildtype glioblastoma (GBM) has found to be accompanied with increased expression of branched-chain amino acid trasaminase1 (BCAT1), which is associated with tumor growth and disease progression. In this retrospective study, quantitative RT-PCR, immunohistochemistry, and western blot were performed with GBM patient tissues to evaluate the BCAT1 level. Quantitative MR imaging parameters were evaluated from DSC perfusion imaging, DWI, contrast-enhanced T1WI and FLAIR imaging using a 3T MR scanner. The level of BCAT1 was significantly higher in IDH1-wildtype patients than in IDH1-mutant patients obtained in immunohistochemistry and western blot. The BCAT1 level was significantly correlated with the mean and 95 th percentile-normalized CBV as well as the mean ADC based on FLAIR images. In addition, the 95 th percentile-normalized CBV from CE T1WI also had a significant correlation with the BCAT1 level. Moreover, the median PFS in patients with BCAT1 expression <100 was longer than in those with BCAT1 expression ≥100. Taken together, we found that a high BCAT1 level is correlated with high CBV and a low ADC value as well as the poor prognosis of BCAT1 expression is related to the aggressive nature of GBM.
