Systems Biology Unraveled the Relationship of lncRNA OIP5-AS1 with CD25 and its Co-Expression Analysis in Cancers
Background: Treg cells function in the immune homeostasis, these cells express high level of CD25. Even though the molecular mechanisms of CD25-mediated signaling pathways has been reported, some questions are still unclear, e.g. the relationship and function of the relative lncRNA. It is known that the CD25 expression levels are various among different cancers. Thus, we intended to dissect systems biology of a lncRNA pertained to CD25 and CD25 protein interactors-targeting miRNAs. Methods:
... iRNAs. Methods: Apart from using the available RNA-seq data, the co-expression analysis of the lncRNA pertained to some cancers was performed. Our analysis was done for protein interactors of CD25 by STRING 11.0, ShinyGO v0.60 and KEGG web servers were used for enrichment and network analysis of CD25. TargetScan 7.2, miRTargetLink Human and mirDIP were applied for determining the CD25 and CD25 interactors-targeting miRNAs. To find the lncRNA-miRNA and lncRNA-protein interactions, starBase v3.0, LncBase Predicted v.2 and SFPEL-LPI were recruited, respectively. Also, using Co-LncRNA, the co-expressed lncRNA analysis and the relative signaling pathways in some cancers including bladder, breast, head and neck, kidney, liver, lung, prostate and thyroid cancers using RNA-seq data were achieved. Results: OIP5-AS1 was shown to have the interaction with CD25 and CD25 protein interactors-targeting miRNAs. In addition, the co-expression of OIP5-AS1 in cancers and their signaling pathways was identified. Conclusions: Possibly, OIP5-AS1 can effect on CD25 expression in all relative signaling pathways of these cancers.
