Plakophilins (PKPs) act as a key regulator of different signaling programs and control a variety of cellular processes ranging from transcription, protein synthesis, growth, proliferation, and tumor development. The function and possible mechanism of PKP3 in ovarian cancer (OC) remain unknown. It is extremely important to investigate the expression and prognostic values of PKP3, as well as their possible mechanisms, and immune infiltration in OC. Therefore, in this paper we explored the potential oncogenic role of PKP3 in 33 tumors based on The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) datasets. The result outcomes showed that PKP3 is highly expressed in most cancers, and the expression level and prognosis of PKP3 showed little significance in cancer patients. Moreover, oncologists have found that members of the plakophilin family have different degrees of abnormality in ovarian cancer. PKP3 played a key part in carcinogenesis and aggressiveness of OC as well as malignant biological activity and can be used as a biomarker for early diagnosis and prognosis evaluation in OC.
