TRIM28 is a distinct prognostic biomarker that worsens the tumor immune microenvironment in lung adenocarcinoma

Figure 6. Correlation of TRIM28 expression with immune cell infiltration. (A) TRIM28 levels were significantly negatively associated with the levels of most tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes across human tumors in the TISIDB database. (B) TRIM28 levels correlated negatively with the levels of central memory CD8+ T cells, myeloid-derived suppressor cells, natural killer T cells, macrophages, neutrophils and regulatory T cells. (C) TRIM28 levels correlated negatively with the infiltrating levels of B cells, CD8+ T cells, macrophages, neutrophils and dendritic cells in LUAD in the TIMER database. LUAD, lung adenocarcinoma; Tcm_CD8, Central memory CD8 T cell; MDSC, Myeloid-derived suppressor cell; NKT, Natural killer T cell; Treg, regulatory T cell. TILs, tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes.
