Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease, which can damage multiple organs. The adaptive immune system, including CD8+ T cells, plays an essential role in this disease. However, the pathogenesis of SLE remains unclear, and there is a lack of effective diagnosis and treatment methods for SLE. In particular, there has been little research on SLE biomarkers, which have been widely studied and used in cancer diagnosis and treatment. In this study, bioinformatics tools were used to screen for hub genes and signaling pathways involving CD8+ T cells in patients with SLE. This is the first determination of metabolic abnormalities in SLE CD8+ T cells using bioinformatics pathway enrichment analysis. The PPI network and MCC algorithm identified SKP2 as a potential biomarker for SLE.
