    Abstract Introduction: DNA polymerases are crucial for maintaining genome stability and influencing tumorigenesis. However, the clinical implications of DNA polymerases in tumorigenesis and their potential as anti-cancer therapy targets are not well understood. Methods: We conducted a systematic analysis using TCGA Pan-Cancer Atlas data and Gene Set Cancer Analysis results to examine the expression profiles of 15 DNA polymerases (POLYs) and their clinical correlations. We also evaluated the prognostic value of POLYs by analyzing their expression levels in relation to overall survival time (OS) using Kaplan-Meier survival curves. Additionally, we investigated the correlations between POLY expression… More >

    FGD5 as a novel prognostic biomarker and its association with immune infiltrates in lung adenocarcinoma

    ZHONGXIANG TANG1,2, LILI WANG1,2, GUOJUN WU1,2, LING QIN1,2,*, YURONG TAN1,2,*

    BIOCELL, Vol.47, No.11, pp. 2503-2516, 2023, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2023.031565

    Abstract Background: Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has a poor prognosis with a low 5-year survival rate. Lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) accounts for 50%. Facio-genital dysplasia-5 (FGD5), a member of a subfamily of Rho GTP-GDP exchange factors, may be a good molecular biomarker for diagnosis and prognosis. Objective: To explore the clinical application of FGD5, the study was designed to investigate the prognosis value of FGD5 expression and its correlation with immune infiltrates in LUAD patients. Methods: Through the Wilcoxon signed-rank test and logistic regression, the correlation between clinical characteristics and FGD5 expression was analyzed. Kaplan–Meier plotter analysis,… More > Graphic Abstract

    Aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator 2 as a prognostic biomarker and immunotherapeutic indicator for clear cell renal cell carcinoma

    RENLONG ZHOU1,2,#, SHUANG LI3,#, XILIN XIAO1,*

    BIOCELL, Vol.47, No.11, pp. 2397-2408, 2023, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2023.030281

    Abstract Background: In many cancer types, aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator 2 (ARNT2) has been found to be associated with tumor cell proliferation and prognosis. However, the role of ARNT2 in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) has not been completely elucidated. In this study, the potential role of ARNT2 in ccRCC development was characterized. Methods: A pan-cancer dataset (TCGA-TARGET-GTEx) was accessed from UCSC Xena Data Browser. ARNT2 expression in normal and tumor samples was compared. Univariate Cox regression was performed to evaluate the prognostic value of ARNT2. Single sample gene set enrichment analysis (ssGSEA) was… More >

    Ring finger protein 157 is a prognostic biomarker and is associated with immune infiltrates in human breast cancer

    XIN ZHU1,2,#, BIN XIAO3,#,*, WENWU ZHANG3,4, XIAOYU SONG3, WEI GONG5, LINHAI LI3,*, XINPING CHEN1,2,*

    BIOCELL, Vol.47, No.10, pp. 2265-2281, 2023, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2023.029195

    Abstract Background: The protein encoded by ring finger protein 157 (RNF157) is known to function as an E3 ubiquitin ligase. However, whether the level of RNF157 expression in breast cancer correlates with prognosis and immune cell infiltration among breast cancer patients remains to be further explored. Methods: In this study, publicly available datasets were used for evaluating RNF157 expression in different tumors compared with normal samples. Several independent datasets were screened for investigating the relationship between RNF157 and breast cancer survival, different mutation profiles, and tumor immune cell infiltration. We conducted a pathway enrichment analysis to… More >

    A pan-cancer analysis identifies SOAT1 as an immunological and prognostic biomarker

    YANGQING HUANG1,2, XINLAN ZHOU1, XIUFEN LI1, DAN HUANG1, ZHONG FANG3,*, RONGRONG DING1,*

    Oncology Research, Vol.31, No.2, pp. 193-205, 2023, DOI:10.32604/or.2023.027112

    Abstract Sterol o-acyltransferase1 (SOAT1) is an enzyme that regulates lipid metabolism. Nevertheless, the predictive value of SOAT1 regarding immune responses in cancer is not fully understood. Herein, we aimed to expound the predictive value and the potential biological functions of SOAT1 in pan-cancer. Raw data related to SOAT1 expression in 33 different types of cancer were acquired from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) databases. SOAT1 expression was significantly increased in most cancers and showed a distinct correlation with prognosis. This enhanced expression of the SOAT1 gene was confirmed by evaluating SOAT1 protein More >

    ABCC8 is correlated with immune cell infiltration and overall survival in lower grade glioma

    LIPING GONG1, MING JIA2,*

    BIOCELL, Vol.47, No.1, pp. 109-123, 2023, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2023.024620

    Abstract ATP binding cassette subfamily C member 8 (ABCC8) encodes a protein regulating the ATP-sensitive potassium channel. Whether the level of ABCC8 mRNA in lower grade glioma (LGG) correlates with immune cell infiltration and patient outcomes has not been evaluated until now. Comparisons of ABCC8 expression between different tumors and normal tissues were evaluated by exploring publicly available datasets. The association between ABCC8 and tumor immune cell infiltration, diverse gene mutation characteristics, tumor mutation burden (TMB), and survival in LGG was also investigated in several independent datasets. Pathway enrichment analysis was conducted to search for ABCC8-associated… More >

    BIOCELL, Vol.46, No.5, pp. 1215-1243, 2022, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2022.018221

    Abstract The aim of this study was to reveal genes associated with breast cancer metastasis, to investigate their intrinsic relationship with immune cell infiltration in the tumor microenvironment, and to screen for prognostic biomarkers. Gene expression data of breast cancer patients and their metastases were downloaded from the GEO, TCGA database. R language package was used to screen for differentially expressed genes, enrichment analysis of genes, PPI network construction, and also to elucidate key genes for diagnostic and prognostic survival. Spearman’s r correlation was used to analyze the correlation between key genes and infiltrating immune cells.… More >
