Abstract

The Transient Receptor Potential Melastatin (TRPM) protein family members have been demonstrated to be involved in a variety of different types of human cancer. However, to the best of our knowledge, there has not yet been a systematic study regarding the mRNA expression of the TRPM protein family or its prognostic value in human cancer. The present study investigated TRPM expression and its prognostic value in various human cancer types via the Oncomine database, Kaplan‑Meier plotter, and the PrognoScan and Gene Expression Profiling Interactive Analysis databases. It was revealed that the transcriptional levels of TRPM1, TRPM3 and TRPM6 were decreased in the majority of cancer tissues, while TRPM2 was increased in most cancer types. In addition, the high or low transcriptional levels of the TRPM protein family members were associated with survival outcomes of different types of solid tumors. The present study suggested that certain TRPM protein family members may serve as useful biomarkers for cancer prognosis and anticancer targets for cancer treatment.
