Extracting predictors for lung adenocarcinoma based on Granger causality test and stepwise character selection.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND:Lung adenocarcinoma is the most common type of lung cancer, with high mortality worldwide. Its occurrence and development were thoroughly studied by high-throughput expression microarray, which produced abundant data on gene expression, DNA methylation, and miRNA quantification. However, the hub genes, which can be served as bio-markers for discriminating cancer and healthy individuals, are not well screened. RESULT:Here we present a new method for extracting gene predictors, aiming to obtain the least predictors without losing the efficiency. We firstly analyzed three different expression microarrays and constructed multi-interaction network, since the individual expression dataset is not enough for describing biological behaviors dynamically and systematically. Then, we transformed the undirected interaction network to directed network by employing Granger causality test, followed by the predictors screened with the use of the stepwise character selection algorithm. Six predictors, including TOP2A, GRK5, SIRT7, MCM7, EGFR, and COL1A2, were ultimately identified. All the predictors are the cancer-related, and the number is very small fascinating diagnosis. Finally, the validation of this approach was verified by robustness analyses applied to six independent datasets; the precision is up to 95.3% ??100%. CONCLUSION:Although there are complicated differences between cancer and normal cells in gene functions, cancer cells could be differentiated in case that a group of special genes expresses abnormally. Here we presented a new, robust, and effective method for extracting gene predictors. We identified as low as 6 genes which can be taken as predictors for diagnosing lung adenocarcinoma.
