Gastric carcinoma is the fourth most prevalent cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide because of dismal prognosis and few therapeutic options. Accumulated studies have indicated that targeting lysyl oxidase (LOX) family members may serve as an anticancer strategy. Nevertheless, the specific mechanisms of LOX in stomach carcinoma are still unclear. In this study, we demonstrated that LOX is significantly different in 13 types of cancers and may act as a potential therapeutic target, especially in stomach carcinoma. Moreover, overexpression of LOX in gastric carcinoma was validated by multiple databases and contributed to the poor overall survival (OS), progression-free survival (PFS) and post-progression survival (PPS) of stomach adenocarcinoma (STAD) patients. Next, based on the ceRNA hypothesis, the HIF1A-AS2/RP11-366L20.2-miR-29c axis was characterized as the upstream regulatory mechanism of LOX gene overexpression in gastric cancer by combining correlation analysis, expression analysis, and survival analysis. Finally, we illustrated that LOX gene overexpression leads to dismal prognosis of gastric cancer, perhaps through promoting M2 macrophage polarization and tumor immune escape and enhancing drug resistance of tumor cells to chemotherapeutic drugs. Our research demonstrate that LOX may be potentially applied as a novel prognostic marker and targeting inhibition of LOX holds promise as a treatment strategy for gastric cancer.
