Glioblastoma (GBM) is characterized by rapid and lethal infiltration of brain tissue, which is the primary cause of treatment failure and deaths for GBM. Therefore, understanding the molecular mechanisms of tumor cell invasion is crucial for the treatment of GBM. In this study, we dissected the single-cell RNA-seq data of 3345 cells from four patients and identified dysregulated genes including long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), which were involved in the development and progression of GBM. Based on co-expression network analysis, we identified a module (M1) that significantly overlapped with the largest number of dysregulated genes and was confirmed to be associated with GBM invasion by integrating EMT signature, experiment-validated invasive marker and pseudotime trajectory analysis. Further, we denoted invasion-associated lncRNAs which showed significant correlations with M1 and revealed their gradually increased expression levels along the tumor cell invasion trajectory, such as VIM-AS1, WWTR1-AS1, and NEAT1. We also observed the contribution of higher expression of these lncRNAs to poorer survival of GBM patients. These results were mostly recaptured in another validation data of 7930 single cells from 28 GBM patients. Our findings identified lncRNAs that played critical roles in regulating or controlling cell invasion and migration of GBM and provided new insights into the molecular mechanisms underlying GBM invasion as well as potential targets for the treatment of GBM.
