Tsukushi is a novel prognostic biomarker and correlates with tumor-infiltrating B cells in non-small cell lung cancer

Correlations of TSKU expression with immune infiltration levels in LUAD and LUSC using TIMER database. (A) The correlations of TSKU expression with infiltrating levels of B cells, CD8+ T cells, CD4+ T cells, and dendritic cells in LUAD (N = 515). (B) The correlations of TSKU expression with infiltrating levels of B cells, CD8+ T cells, CD4+ T cells, neutrophils, and dendritic cells in LUSC (N = 501). (C) Comparing the proportions of different TIICs between groups with high TSKU expression levels (N = 238) and low TSKU expression levels (N = 238) in LUAD samples. (D) Comparing the proportions of different TIICs between groups with high TSKU expression levels (N = 241) and low TSKU expression levels (N = 241) in LUSC samples (LE, low expression; HE, high expression).
