Results: Compared with normal human tissues, six NCAP family genes were highly expressed in sarcoma tissues, and high expression of the six genes were significantly associated with the poor prognosis of sarcoma patients. The expression of NCAPs in sarcoma was significantly related to the low infiltration level of macrophages and CD4+ T cells. GO and KEGG enrichment analysis showed that NCAPs and their interacting genes were mainly enriched in organelle fission for biological processes (BP), spindle for cellular component (CC), tubulin binding for molecular function (MF), and ‘Cell cycle’ pathway. Methods: We explored the expression of NCAP family members by ONCOMINE, and GEPIA databases. Additionally, the prognostic value of NCAP family genes in sarcoma was detected by Kaplan-Meier Plotter and GEPIA databases. Moreover, we explored the relationship between NCAP family gene expression level and immune infiltration using the TIMER database. Finally, we performed GO and KEGG analysis for NCAPs-related genes by DAVID database. Conclusion: The six members of NCAP gene family can be used as biomarkers to predict the prognosis of sarcoma. They were also correlated with the low immune infiltration in sarcoma. %U https://doi.org/10.18632/aging.204683 %J Aging %0 Journal Article %R 10.18632/aging.204683 %@ 1945-4589
