Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is a dangerous neurological disease. The mechanism of ferroptosis in ICH remains unclear. Using bioinformatics analysis, we aimed to identify the key molecules involved in ferroptosis and provide treatment targets for ICH to further explore the mechanism of ferroptosis in ICH. GSE24265 was downloaded from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) dataset and intersected with ferroptosis genes. A total of 45 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were selected, most of which were involved in the TNF signaling pathway and oxidative stress response. Key modules constructed by the protein–protein interaction (PPI) network analysis and screening of genes related to the TNF signaling pathway led to the confirmation of the following genes of interest: MAPK1, MAPK8, TNFAIP3, ATF4, and SLC2A1. Moreover, MAPK1 was one of the key genes related to TNF signaling and oxidative stress, and it may play an important role in ferroptosis after cerebral hemorrhage. The MAPK1-related molecules included hsa-miR-15b-5P, hsa-miR-93-5P, miR-20b-5p, SNHG16, XIST, AC084219.4, RP11-379K17.11, CTC-444N24.11, GS1-358P8.4, CTB-89H12.4, RP4-773N10.5, and FGD5-AS1. We also generated a hemorrhage rat model, which was used to conduct exercise intervention in ICH rats, and qRT-PCR was used to assess the expression levels of our genes of interest. The mRNA levels after cerebral hemorrhage showed that MAPK1, ATF4, SLC2A1, and TNFAIP3 were upregulated, whereas MAPK8 was downregulated. Treadmill training increased the expression of anti-inflammatory molecules TNFAIP3 and SLC2A1 and reduced the expression of MAPK1, ATF4, and MAPK8, indicating that treadmill training may be utilized as antioxidant therapy to decrease neuronal ferroptosis. The results of this study indicated that the MAPK1-related mRNA–miRNA–lncRNA interaction chain could be potentially employed as a biomarker of the inception and progression of ferroptosis after cerebral hemorrhage.
