In this study, we investigated the functional role and prognostic value of spindle pole body component 25 (SPC25) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). SPC25 expression profile in lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD), lung squamous cell carcinoma (LUSC) and normal lung tissues was examined by using data from the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and the Human Protein Atlas (HPA). LUAD A549 cells and LUSC H520 cells were used to investigate the influence of SPC25 on cancer stem cell (CSC) properties in terms of the proportion of CD133+ cells, tumorsphere formation and CSC markers, including CD133, ALDH1 and Sox2. Data mining was also perfo...
