BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to analyze the long non-coding RNA (lncRNA)-associated competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA) network in human retinal tissues following detachment with proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR).

MATERIAL AND METHODS: Expression data of 19 human detached retinas with PVR and 19 normal retinas from postmortem donors were downloaded from Gene Expression Omnibust (GEO) database (GSE28133). The R package “limma” was utilized to discriminate the dysregulated lncRNA and mRNA profiles. Gene Ontology (GO) and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) pathway analyses of differentially expressed mRNAs were performed using R packages “Clusterprofiler.” The ceRNA network of dysregulated genes was constructed by using mircode, miRDB, miRTarBase and TargetScan databases, and was visualized by Cytoscape v3.6.1.

RESULTS: A total of 23 lncRNAs and 994 mRNAs were identified significantly expressed between the human detached retinas with PVR and the normal retina tissues, with thresholds of |log₂FoldChange| >1.0 and adjusted P-value <0.05. The constructed ceRNA network (lncRNA-miRNA-mRNA regulatory axis) included 9 PVR-specific lncRNAs, as well as 27 miRNAs and 73 mRNAs.

CONCLUSIONS: We demonstrated the differential lncRNA expression profile and constructed a lncRNA-associated ceRNA network in human detached retinas with PVR. This may ferret out an unknown ceRNA regulatory network in human retinal detachment with PVR.
