Growing evidence has demonstrated that transforming acidic coiled-coil protein 3 (TACC3), a member of the TACC family, may be involved in regulating cell mitosis, transcription, and tumorigenesis. However, the role of TACC3 in kidney renal clear cell carcinoma (KIRC) remains unknown. In this study, multiple databases were used to determine the pattern of TACC3 in KIRC. We found that high TACC3 expression was associated with poor overall survival (OS) in stage I, II, IV and grade 3 KIRC patients. Univariate and multivariate Cox regression analyses showed that TACC3 was an independent risk factor for OS among KIRC patients. Moreover, TACC3 expression correlated with immune cell infiltration levels of B cells, T cells (CD8+, CD4+, follicular helper, regulatory and gamma delta), total and resting natural killer cells, total and activated dendritic cells, and resting mast cells. Furthermore, T cell exhaustion markers, such as PD1, CTLA4, LAG3 and TIM-3 were highly expressed in TACC3 overexpressing tissues. In addition, GSEA analysis revealed that the role of TACC3 in KIRC may be closely linked to immune-associated pathways. Therefore, our study reveals that TACC3 is a prognostic biomarker for OS among KIRC patients and may be associated with immune cell infiltration and T cell exhaustion.
