Objective: HNRNPA2B1, one of the regulator of m6A methylation, is involved in a wide range of physiological processes. However, the aberrant expression of HNRNPA2B1 in Breast Cancer (BC) and its clinical significance still need to be further studied.

Methods: We used related databases to analyze the relationship between HNRNPA2B1 and BC by bioinformatics. Then, we further detected the expression of HNRNPA2B1 by immunohistochemical method, and analyzed the relationship between it and the prognosis of breast cancer by COX regression method.

Results: In the study, we found that the expression level of HNRNPA2B1 in breast cancer (BC) was significantly higher than that in normal breast tissues. In addition, the expression level of HNRNPA2B1 in BC samples was significantly correlated with clinical indexes such as TNM stage. The Cox analysis revealed that the expression of HNRNPA2B1 in BC had significant clinical prognostic value. The results of immune infiltration of HNRNPA2B1 showed that there was a significant correlation between HNRNPA2B1 and immune cell subsets.

Conclusion: Our results show that the expression of HNRNPA2B1 in BC has important clinical diagnostic significance and high expression may be related with poor clinical outcome of BC. This helps to provide us with a new direction of BC targeted therapy.
