Gastric cancer (GC) development trends have identified multiple processes ranging from inflammation to carcinogenesis, however, key pathogenic mechanisms remain unclear. Tissue microenvironment (TME) cells are critical for the progression of malignant tumors. Here, we generated a dynamic transcriptome map of various TME cells during multi-disease stages using single-cell sequencing analysis. We observed a set of key transition markers related to TME cell carcinogenic evolution, and delineated landmark dynamic carcinogenic trajectories of these cells. Of these, macrophages, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells exerted considerable effects toward epithelial cells, suggesting these cells may be key TME factors promoting GC occurrence and development. Our results suggest a phenotypic convergence of different TME cell types toward tumor formation processes in GC. We believe our data would pave the way for early GC detection, diagnosis, and treatment therapies.
