Currently, the roles of ZNF692 have been documented exclusively in lung, colon, and cervical cancers. However, its involvement in pan cancer remains unknown. In this study, we employed bioinformatics analysis and experimental validation to investigate the role of ZNF692 in pan cancer. Our findings revealed aberrant expression of ZNF692 across various types of cancer. High expression of ZNF692 was associated with poor overall survival (OS) in ACC, COAD, KIRC, LAML, and LIHC. ZNF692 exhibited promising diagnostic potential in certain tumor types. A significant correlation was observed between high ZNF692 expression and advanced stages of ACC, BLCA, KICH, KIRC, LIHC, and OV. The expression of ZNF692 exhibited a significant association with microsatellite instability (MSI) in eight types of cancer and tumor mutational burden (TMB) in ten types of cancer. A noteworthy correlation was observed between ZNF692 expression and immune infiltration as well as immune checkpoints. Amplification of ZNF692 emerged as the most frequent alteration in pan cancer. ZNF692 was implicated in various biological processes, cellular components, and molecular functions within the context of pan cancer. It is plausible that ZNF692 may contribute to chemotherapy and potentially be linked to chemoresistance. We constructed a competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA) network involving AC009403.11/miR-126-3p/ZNF692 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The expression of ZNF692 exhibited a notable upregulation in HCC cell lines. Aberrant expression of ZNF692 was observed across various types of cancer. ZNF692 holds potential as a valuable diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic target in the context of pan cancer.
