Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been reported to play a key role in regulating tumor microenvironment and immunity. Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) are abundant in many tumors. However, the functional and clinical significance of lncRNAs specifically expressed in CAFs has not been fully elucidated. In this study, we identified a list of 95 CAF-specific lncRNAs (FibLnc), including HHLA3, TP53TG1, ST7-AS1, LINC00536, ZNF503-AS1, MIR22HG, and MAPT-AS1, based on immune cell transcriptome expression profiling data. Based on the Cancer Genome Atlas and Gene Expression Omnibus datasets, we found that the FibLnc score predicted differences in overall patient survival and performed well in multiple datasets. FibLnc score was associated with the clinical stage of patients with breast cancer but did not significantly correlate with the PAM50 classification. Functional analysis showed that FibLnc was positively correlated with signaling pathways associated with malignant tumor progression. In addition, FibLnc was positively correlated with tumor mutational load and could predict immunotherapy response in patients with breast cancer receiving anti-PD-1 or anti-CTLA4 therapy. Our proposed FibLnc score was able to reflect the status of the immune environment and immunotherapeutic response in breast cancer, which could help explore potential therapeutic decisions and regulatory mechanisms of CAF-specific lncRNAs.
