In this study, we constructed an eight-gene metabolic related signature for LUAD. The eight-gene prognostic signature (including PLAUR, F2, UGT2B17, GNG7, IDO2, ST3GAL6, PIK3CG, and GLS2) exhibited a good prognostic value in the TCGA LUAD training dataset and testing dataset. In addition, the risk score based on the signature model was significantly correlated with immune cell infiltration and expression levels of immune markers in LUAD patients. LUAD cohorts from GEO were used to validate the model, indicating the usefulness of the model. In summary, we developed and validated an eight-gene signature model for LUAD, which can reflect the immune microenvironment characteristics and predict the prognostic outcomes for LUAD patients.
