Acyl-CoA Synthetase long-chain family member 4 (ACSL4) is a member of acyl-CoA synthetase protein long-chain family, which is associated with amino acid synthesis, lipid synthesis and lipid peroxidation dependent iron death. However, the role of ACSL4 in generalized carcinoma remains unclear. We aim to analyze the expression and prognostic value of ACSL4 in pan-cancer, and further explore the correlation between ACSL4 and immune infiltration. Through ONCOMINE, TIMER (Tumor Immune Estimation Resource), GEPIA (Gene expression Profiling Interactive), UALCAN and HPA, ACSL4 expression patterns of in pan-cancer were analyzed. The prognostic value of ACSL4 was analyzed using PrognoScan and Kaplan-Meier Plotter databases. Furthermore, gene variation and epigenetic modification of ACSL4 were analyzed by cBioPortal and GSCA databases. Meanwhile, GEPIA and TIMER databases applied to evaluate the relationship between ACSL4 expression and immune infiltration. These results indicate that ACSL4 expression is down-regulated and associated with prognosis in most tumors. In general, lower ACSL4 expression shows more beneficial prognosis. The most common genetic alteration of ACSL4 is point mutation. ACSL4 is negatively correlated with DNA methylation levels in most cancers. ACSL4 mutations or hypomethylation are associated with poor prognosis. In addition, ACSL4 is positively correlated with immune infiltration in cancers. ACSL4 and immune infiltration are strongly associated with prognosis in BRCA (Breast invasive carcinoma) and SKCM (Skin Cutaneous Melanoma). ACSL4 mutation caused significant changes of immune infiltration in UCEC (Uterine Corpus Endometrial Carcinoma) and SARC (Sarcoma). ACSL4 may be a promising prognostic biomarker for pan-cancer and is closely associated with immune infiltration in the tumor microenvironment.
