The present study aimed to classify gastric cancer (GC) into subtypes and to screen the subtype‑specific genes, their targeted microRNAs (miRNAs) and enriched pathways to explore the putative mechanism of each GC subtypes. The GSE13861 data set was downloaded from the Gene Expression Omnibus and used to screen differential expression genes (DEGs) i...


... In the miR-338/CCL21/NF-κB pathway, miR-338 may increase apoptosis of GC cells by targeting CCL21 leading to NF-κB activation [31]. In GC patients, there has been an association between overexpression of CCL21 in tumor tissues and metastatic features as well as a suboptimal clinical outcome [32]. ...
