N 6 -methyladenosine (m 6 A) functions as an important regulator in various human cancers, including gastric cancer. The immunotherapy targeting PD-1/PD-L1 has brought hope for advanced gastric cancer therapeutic. Here, present research aims to investigate the roles of m 6 A reader IGF2BP1 on gastric cancer tumor development and immune escape. Results indicated that IGF2BP1 up-regulated in the gastric cancer tissue and correlated with poor prognosis of gastric cancer patients. IGF2BP1 overexpression augmented the proliferation of co-cultured gastric cancer cells, and mitigated the CD8+ T cells mediated anti-tumor response, including IFN-γ secretion, surface PD-L1 level, and cytotoxicity of CD8+ T cells. Meanwhile, IGF2BP1 silencing exerted the opposite effects. In silico analysis revealed that there was a remarkable m 6 A modified site on PD-L1 mRNA. Moreover, the IGF2BP1 overexpression enhanced the stability of PD-L1 mRNA, thereby deteriorating the immune escape of gastric cancer cells. Collectively, these results describe a novel regulatory mechanism of IGF2BP1 by regulating PD-L1 through m 6 A epigenetic modification, which might provide insights for gastric cancer immunotherapies.
