The soluble resistance-related calcium-binding protein (sorcin, SRI) serves as the calcium-binding protein for the regulation of calcium homeostasis and multidrug resistance. Although the mounting evidence suggests a crucial role of SRI in the chemotherapeutic resistance of certain types of tumors, insights into pan-cancer analysis of SRI are unavailable. Therefore, this study aimed to probe the multifaceted properties of SRI across the 33 cancer types. The SRI expression was analyzed via The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and Genotype Tissue-Expression (GTEX) database. The SRI genomic alterations and drug sensitivity analysis were performed based on the cBioPortal and the CellMiner database. Furthermore, the correlations among the SRI expression and survival outcomes, clinical features, stemness, tumor mutation burden (TMB), microsatellite instability (MSI), and immune cells infiltration were analyzed using TCGA data. The differential analysis showed that SRI was upregulated in 25 tumor types compared with the normal tissues. Aberrant expression of SRI was able to predict survival in different cancers. Further, the most frequent alteration of SRI genomic was amplification. Moreover, the aberrant SRI expression was related to stemness score, epithelial-mesenchymal-transition (EMT)-related genes, MSI, TMB, and tumor immune microenvironment in various types of cancer. TIMER database mining further found that the SRI expression was significantly correlated with the infiltration levels of various immune cells in certain types of cancer. Intriguingly, the SRI expression was negatively correlated with drug sensitivity of fluorouracil, paclitaxel, docetaxel, and isotretinoin. Our findings highlight the predictive value of SRI in cancer and provide insights for illustrating the role of SRI in tumorigenesis and drug resistance.
