The construction and analysis of tumor-infiltrating immune cells and ceRNA networks in metastatic adrenal cortical carcinoma.

ABSTRACT: PURPOSE:To construct and analyze tumor-infiltrating immune cell and ceRNA (competitive endogenous RNA) networks in metastatic adrenal cortical carcinoma (ACC). METHODS:A ceRNA network was established to identify the ceRNAs involved in metastasis of ACC based on 92 samples from TCGA, including 18 cases of metastasis and 74 cases of non-metastatic primary tumors. And the algorithm "cell type identification by estimating relative subsets of RNA transcripts (CIBERSORT)" was used to quantify the proportion of immune cells in ACC. In addition, predictive nomograms based on the types of important immune cells or ceRNAs were constructed to predict ACC prognosis. Moreover, we evaluated the relationships between metastatic ACC-specific immune cells and ceRNA networks to identify the potential immune gene characteristics. RESULTS:Ten prognostic biomarkers were identified as key members of the ceRNA network and three tumor-infiltrating immune cells were identified by CIBERSORT algorithm. Some important co-expression patterns between immune cells and ceRNAs network indicate significant correlation between Macrophages M0 and hsa-miR-130b-3p (P < 0.001), Macrophages M0 and H2AFX (P = 0.003). CONCLUSIONS:The present study inferred that the metastasis-related ceRNAs of H2AFX, hsa-miR-130b-3p and Macrophages M0 might play important roles in ACC metastasis.
