Sepsis is a highly heterogeneous syndrome that is caused by an unbalanced host response to an infection. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been reported to exert regulatory roles in a variety of biological processes, and became potential biomarkers and therapeutic targets for diverse diseases. However, current understanding on the roles of lncRNAs in sepsis is extremely limited. Herein, to decipher the underlying functions of lncRNAs, we reexplored the 83 transcriptome datasets from specimens with sepsis, no_sepsis by final diagnosis, and control. The results of differentially expressed genes (DEGs), differentially expressed lncRNA (DElncRNA) analysis, and co-expression analysis of lncRNA–mRNA pairs were obtained. We found that the expression pattern of lncRNAs was significantly activated in sepsis specimens, which was clearly distinguished in sepsis from no_sepsis and control specimens. By performing co-expression analysis, we found DElncRNAs were closely related to T-cell activation and immune response–related terms in sepsis by regulating mRNA expression in the trans manner. The lncRNA–mRNA network and the qRT-PCR test revealed that lncRNAs LINC00861, RP11-284N8.3, and CTB-61M7.2 were significantly correlated with the pathogenesis of sepsis. In addition, weighted gene co-expression analysis (WGCNA) and cis-regulation analysis also revealed sepsis-specific lncRNAs were highly associated with important biological processes correlated with sepsis. In summary, the systematic dysregulation of lncRNAs is tightly involved in the remodeling of gene expression regulatory network in sepsis, and the lncRNA–mRNA expression network may be used to refine biomarker predictions for developing novel therapeutic approaches in sepsis.
