Abstract

The increasing interest in RNA modifications has significantly advanced epigenomic and epitranscriptomic technologies. This study focuses on the immuno-oncological impact of ALYREF in human cancer through a pan-cancer analysis, enhancing understanding of this gene’s role in cancer. We observed differential ALYREF expression between tumor and normal samples, correlating strongly with prognosis in various cancers, particularly kidney renal papillary cell carcinoma (KIRP) and liver hepatocellular carcinoma (LIHC). ALYREF showed a negative correlation with most tumor-infiltrating cells in lung squamous cell carcinoma (LUSC) and lymphoid neoplasm diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBC), while positive correlations were noted in LIHC, kidney chromophobe (KICH), mesothelioma (MESO), KIRP, pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma (PARD), and glioma (GBMLGG). Additionally, ALYREF expression was closely associated with tumor heterogeneity, stemness indices, and a high mutation rate in TP53 across these cancers. In conclusion, ALYREF may serve as an oncogenic biomarker in numerous cancers, meriting further research attention.
