Background

Matrix metalloproteinase 14 (MMP14) is a member of the MMP family, which interacts with tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinase (TIMPs), and is involved in normal physiological functions such as cell migration, invasion, metastasis, angiogenesis, and proliferation, as well as tumor genesis and progression. However, there has been a lack of relevant reports on the effect of MMP14 across cancers. This study aims to explore the correlation between MMP14 and pan-cancer prognosis, immune infiltration, and the effects of pan-cancer gene mismatch repair (MMR), microsatellite instability (MSI), tumor mutational burden (TMB), DNA methylation, and immune checkpoint genes.

Methods

In this study, we used bioinformatics to analyze data from multiple databases, including The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), ONCOMINE, and Kaplan–Meier plotter. We investigated the relationship between the expression of MMP14 in tumors and tumor prognosis, the relationship between MMP14 expression and tumor cell immune infiltration, and the relationship between MMR gene MMR, MSI, TMB, DNA methylation, and immune checkpoint genes.

Results

MMP14 expression is highly associated with the prognosis of a variety of cancers and tumor immune invasion and has important effects on pan oncologic MMR, MSI, TMB, DNA methylation, and immune checkpoint genes.

Conclusion

MMP14 is highly correlated with tumor prognosis and immune invasion and affects the occurrence and progression of many tumors. All of these results fully indicate that MMP14 may be a biomarker for the prognosis, diagnosis, and treatment of many tumors and provide new ideas and direction for subsequent tumor immune research and treatment strategies.
