Abstract
Transmembrane protein 115 (TMEM115) is a membrane protein; considering the potential of membrane proteins as biomarkers for various pathological conditions, we aimed to examine the value of TMEM115 as a potential biomarker for improving the prognosis and treatment of liver hepatocellular carcinoma (LIHC) in this study. Online databases including the Tumor Immune Estimation Resource, UALCAN, Gene Expression Profiling Interactive Analysis version 2, OSlihc, and human Protein Atlas were used. The analysis suggested that TMEM115 expression in LIHC was higher compared to normal tissues; further, TMEM115 expression was confirmed to be related with poor prognosis in LIHC. Higher protein expression levels of TMEM115 were observed in LIHC tissues than in normal tissues. Tumor infiltration by immune cells was confirmed to be correlated with the expression of TMEM115. High TMEM115 expression and immune cell infiltration were further related to poor prognosis in LIHC. We also confirmed a correlation between TMEM115 and TP53 mutations. In conclusion, we confirmed that TMEM115 expression is correlated with tumor-infiltrating immune cells and poor prognosis in LIHC and that TMEM115 shows potential as a prognostic biomarker in LIHC.
