The Role of PVRIG in Liver Cancer
The major causes of morbidity and mortality of patients with chronic liver disease are liver fibrosis and cirrhosis. Previous studies have been concerned with immune dysfunction in the pathogenesis of cirrhosis progress. However, the potential molecular mechanism of how the liver’s fibrotic state favors tumor progression is still unclear. We attempted to reveal deviations of the immune cell landscape between various liver tissues and identify key biomarkers associated with patients’ outcomes.
...These genes may be potential novel checkpoints for immunotherapy, including PVRIG related to NK resting/activated cells and T cell CD8+ infiltration which was recently targeted in breast cancer. Furthermore, Pearson correlation coefficient analysis suggested that PVRIG is significantly positively related to other checkpoint molecules and Teff gene signatures.
