Aberrant expression of methyltransferases and demethylases may augment tumor initiation, proliferation and metastasis through RNA modification, such as m6A and m5C. However, activity of pseudouridine (Ψ) modification of RNA remains unknown in glioma, the most common malignant intracranial tumor. In this study, we explored the expression profiles of the Ψ synthase genes in glioma and constructed an efficient prediction model for glioma prognosis based on the CGGA and TCGA datasets. In addition, the risk-score signature was positively associated with malignancy of gliomas and the abundance of tumor-infiltrating immune cells such as macrophages M0 and regulatory T cells (Tregs), but negatively associated with the abundance of monocytes, NK cell activation and T cell CD4+ naive. In terms of mechanism, the risk-score signature was positively associated with the expression of inflammatory molecules such as S100A11 and CASP4 in glioma. Overall, this study provided evidence for the activity of RNA Ψ modification in glioma malignancy and local immunity.
