DataSheet_1_Identification and Validation of lncRNA-SNHG17 in Lung Adenocarcinoma: A Novel Prognostic and Diagnostic Indicator.docx
Lung cancer has the highest death rate among cancers globally. Accumulating evidence has indicated that cancer-related inflammation plays an important role in the initiation and progression of lung cancer. However, the prognosis, immunological role, and associated regulation axis of inflammatory response-related gene (IRRGs) in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains unclear.Methods
In this study, we perform comprehensive bioinformatics analysis and constructed a prognostic inflammatory response-related gene (IRRGs) and related competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA) network. We also utilized the Pearson’s correlation analysis to determine the correlation between IRRGs expression and tumor mutational burden (TMB), microsatellite instability (MSI), tumor-immune infiltration, and the drug sensitivity in NSCLC. Growth curve and Transwell assay used to verify the function of SNHG17 on NSCLC progression.Results
First, we found that IRRGs were significantly upregulated in lung cancer, and its high expression was correlated with poor prognosis; high expression of IRRGs was significantly correlated with the tumor stage and poor prognosis in lung cancer patients. Moreover, Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) enrichment indicated that these IRRGs are mainly involved in the inflammatory and immune response-related signaling pathway in the progression of NSCLC. We utilized 10 prognostic-related genes to construct a prognostic IRRGs model that could predict the overall survival of lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) patients possessing high specificity and accuracy. Our evidence demonstrated that IRRGs expression was significantly correlated with the TMB, MSI, immune-cell infiltration, and diverse cancer-related drug sensitivity. Finally, we identified the upstream regulatory axis of IRRGs in NSCLC, namely, lncRNA MIR503HG/SNHG17/miR-330-3p/regulatory axis. Finally, knockdown of SNHG17 expression inhibited lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) cell proliferation and migration. Our findings confirmed that SNHG17 is a novel oncogenic lncRNA and may be a biomarker for the prognosis and diagnosis of LUAD.Conclusion
DNA hypomethylation/lncRNA MIR503HG/SNHG17/microRNA-330-3p/regulatory axis may be a valuable biomarker for prognosis and is significantly correlated with immune cell infiltration in lung cancer.
