Title: Identification of potential key genes associated with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma based on microarray gene expression profiling
Author: X. Luo, F. Shi, H. Qiu, Y. Tong, X. Gao

Abstract: The study aimed to screen potential key genes, and their targeted miRNAs and transcription factors (TFs) that were related to diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), and explore potential therapeutic targets for the progression of DLBCL. Dataset GSE56315 extracted from human tonsils was downloaded from Gene Expression Omnibus. Limma package was used to identify differential expression genes (DEG) between DLBCL and normal human tonsils samples, and the function and pathway enrichment analyses were performed. Then, functional interaction (FI) networks analyses of DEGs were implemented, and modules were extracted. Additionally, DLBCL-related miRNAs were predicted based on miR2disease database. Thereafter, TF-target DEGs and miRNAs targeted genes were respectively obtained. Finally, the integrated network of TF-target-miRNA was constructed. A total of 4,495 DEGs were identified between DLBCL and NHT samples. Among them, 114 up-regulated DEGs were contained in 8 modules of FI network, while 189 down-regulated DEGs were contained in 12 sub-modules. In addition, most DEGs were enriched in the function of “DNA binding” and pathways of “chemokine signaling pathway”, “phosphatidylinositol signaling system” and “RNA degradation”. Moreover, 19 miRNAs related with DLBCL were downloaded from Mirwalk2. Furthermore, miRNAs of miR-21-5p, miR-155 and miR-17-5p, the TF of STAT1, and DEGs such as NUF2, CCR1, PIK3R1, SMC1A, FOXK1 and CNOT6L had high degrees in the integrated networks of TF-target-miRNA. DEGs like NUF2, CCR1, PIK3R1, SMC1A, FOXK1 and CNOT6L might be closely associated with the pathogenesis of DLBCL.
