Abstract

BACKGROUND: Gastric adenocarcinoma accounts for 95% of all gastric malignant tumors. The purpose of this research was to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) of gastric adenocarcinoma by use of bioinformatics methods.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: The gene microarray datasets of GSE103236, GSE79973, and GSE29998 were imported from the GEO database, containing 70 gastric adenocarcinoma samples and 68 matched normal samples. Gene ontology (GO) and KEGG analysis were applied to screened DEGs; Cytoscape software was used for constructing protein-protein interaction (PPI) networks and to perform module analysis of the DEGs. UALCAN was used for prognostic analysis.

RESULTS: We identified 2909 upregulated DEGs (uDEGs) and 7106 downregulated DEGs (dDEGs) of gastric adenocarcinoma. The GO analysis showed uDEGs were enriched in skeletal system development, cell adhesion, and biological adhesion. KEGG pathway analysis showed uDEGs were enriched in ECM-receptor interaction, focal adhesion, and Cytokine-cytokine receptor interaction. The top 10 hub genes – COL1A1, COL3A1, COL1A2, BGN, COL5A2, THBS2, TIMP1, SPP1, PDGFRB, and COL4A1 – were distinguished from the PPI network. These 10 hub genes were shown to be significantly upregulated in gastric adenocarcinoma tissues in GEPIA. Prognostic analysis of the 10 hub genes via UALCAN showed that the upregulated expression of COL3A1, COL1A2, BGN, and THBS2 significantly reduced the survival time of gastric adenocarcinoma patients. Module analysis revealed that gastric adenocarcinoma was related to 2 pathways: including focal adhesion signaling and ECM-receptor interaction.

CONCLUSIONS: This research distinguished hub genes and relevant signal pathways, which contributes to our understanding of the molecular mechanisms, and could be used as diagnostic indicators and therapeutic biomarkers for gastric adenocarcinoma.
