Modulator-Dependent RBPs Changes Alternative Splicing Outcomes in Kidney Cancer

In this study, we use a computational framework to investigate the roles of certain genes, termed modulators, on changing RBPs’ effect on splicing regulation. A total of 1,040,254 modulator-mediated RBP-splicing interactions were identified, including 137 RBPs, 4,309 splicing events and 2,905 modulator candidates from TCGA-KIRC RNA sequencing data. Modulators function categories were defined according to the correlation changes between RBPs expression and their targets splicing outcomes. QKI, as one of the RBPs influencing the most splicing events, attracted our attention in this study: 2,014 changing triplets were identified, including 1,101 modulators and 187 splicing events. Pathway enrichment analysis showed that QKI splicing targets were enriched in tight junction pathway, endocytosis and MAPK signaling pathways, all of which are highly associated with cancer development and progression. This is the first instance of a comprehensive study on how alternative splicing outcomes changes are associated with different expression level of certain proteins, even though they were regulated by the same RBP. Our work may provide a novel view on understanding alternative splicing mechanisms in kidney cancer.

Despite the emphasis on randomized data to guide evidence-based practice, there is a notable lack of clinical trials to inform comparative effectiveness in surgical disciplines. Although this is multifactorial in nature, this paucity ultimately reflects the difficulty associated with conducting surgical trials, particularly in settings where event rates are low (eg, lymph node metastasis in M0 renal cell carcinoma) or when long follow-up is required, as with early-stage disease (eg, low-risk prostate cancer).

Conclusions: Taken together, we identified the key iron metabolism-related and methylated genes for ccRCC through a comprehensive bioinformatics analysis. This study provides a reliable and robust gene signature for the prognostic predictor of ccRCC patients and maybe provides a promising treatment strategy for this lethal disease.
