DataSheet1_Development and Validation of a Novel Stemness-Index-Related Long Noncoding RNA Signature for Breast Cancer Based on Weighted Gene Co-Expression Network Analysis.CSV
Background: Breast cancer (BC) is a major leading cause of woman deaths worldwide. Increasing evidence has revealed that stemness features are related to the prognosis and progression of tumors. Nevertheless, the roles of stemness-index-related long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) in BC remain unclear.
Methods: Differentially expressed stemness-index-related lncRNAs between BC and normal samples in The Cancer Genome Atlas database were screened based on weighted gene co-expression network analysis and differential analysis. Univariate Cox and least absolute shrinkage and selection operator regression analyses were performed to identify prognostic lncRNAs and construct a stemness-index-related lncRNA signature. Time-dependent receiver operating characteristic curves were plotted to evaluate the predictive capability of the stemness-index-related lncRNA signature. Moreover, correlation analysis and functional enrichment analyses were conducted to investigate the stemness-index-related lncRNA signature-related biological function. Finally, a quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction was used to detect the expression levels of lncRNAs.
Results: A total of 73 differentially expressed stemness-index-related lncRNAs were identified. Next, FAM83H-AS1, HID1-AS1, HOXB-AS1, RP11-1070N10.3, RP11-1100L3.8, and RP11-696F12.1 were used to construct a stemness-index-related lncRNA signature, and receiver operating characteristic curves indicated that stemness-index-related lncRNA signature could predict the prognosis of BC well. Moreover, functional enrichment analysis suggested that differentially expressed genes between the high-risk group and low-risk group were mainly involved in immune-related biological processes and pathways. Furthermore, functional enrichment analysis of lncRNA-related protein-coding genes revealed that FAM83H-AS1, HID1-AS1, HOXB-AS1, RP11-1070N10.3, RP11-1100L3.8, and RP11-696F12.1 were associated with neuroactive ligand–receptor interaction, AMPK signaling pathway, PPAR signaling pathway, and cGMP-PKG signaling pathway. Finally, quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction revealed that FAM83H-AS1, HID1-AS1, RP11-1100L3.8, and RP11-696F12.1 might be used as the potential diagnostic biomarkers of BC.
Conclusion: The stemness-index-related lncRNA signature based on FAM83H-AS1, HID1-AS1, HOXB-AS1, RP11-1070N10.3, RP11-1100L3.8, and RP11-696F12.1 could be used as an independent predictor for the survival of BC, and FAM83H-AS1, HID1-AS1, RP11-1100L3.8, and RP11-696F12.1 might be used as the diagnostic markers of BC.
