Molecular chaperones play important roles in regulating various cellular processes and malignant transformation. Expression of some subunits of molecular chaperone CCT/TRiC complex have been reported to be correlated with cancer development and patient survival. However, little is known about the expression and prognostic significance of Chaperonin Containing TCP1 Subunit 2 (CCT2). CCT2 is a gene encoding a molecular chaperone that is a member of the chaperonin containing TCP1 complex (CCT), also known as the TCP1 ring complex (TRiC). Through the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and Molecular Taxonomy of Breast Cancer International Consortium (METABRIC) databases, we systematically reviewed a total of 2,994 cases with transcriptome data and analyzed the functional annotation of CCT2 by Gene ontology and KEGG analysis. Univariate and multivariate survival analysis were performed to investigate the prognostic value of CCT2 in breast cancer. We found CCT2 was significantly upregulated in various tumors. In breast cancer, CCT2 expression was significantly upregulated in HER2-positive (HER2+) group, and more malignant group. In addition, we investigated correlations between CCT2 and other CCT members. Interestingly, almost all CCTs expression were positively correlated with each other, but not CCT6B. Survival analysis suggested that CCT2 overexpression was independently associated with worse prognosis of patients with breast cancer, especially in luminal A subtype. In summary, our results revealed that CCT2 might be involved in regulating cell cycle pathway, and independently predicted worse prognosis in breast cancer patients. These findings may expand understanding of potential anti-CCT2 treatments. To our knowledge, this is the largest and most comprehensive study characterizing the expression pattern of CCT2 together with its prognostic values in breast cancer.
