Expression data from primary CB erythroblasts, immortalized/induced erythroblasts, Fetal liver CD34+ blood stem cells, adult CD34+ blood stem cells, erythroleukemia cell line (TF-1) and human ESC and iPSCs

ABSTRACT: The supply of red blood cells (RBCs) is not sufficient in many developing countries or in developed countries for patients who need chronic transfusion from best-matched donors. Ex vivo expansion and maturation of human erythroid precursor cells (erythroblasts) could represent a potential solution. Proliferating erythroblasts can be expanded from human umbilical cord blood mononuclear cells (CB MNCs) ex vivo for 10^6-10^7 fold (in ~50 days) before undergoing senescence. Here, we report that ectopic expression of three to four genetic factors that have been used for iPS cell derivation enables CB-derived erythroblasts to undergo extended ex vivo expansion (≥10^51 fold in ~9 months) in a defined suspension culture condition without change of cell identity or function. These vastly expanding erythroblasts maintain homogeneously immature erythroblast phenotypes, a normal diploid karyotype and dependence on specific combination of cytokines and hormone for survival and proliferation throughout the continuous expansion period. When switched to a culture condition for terminal maturation, these immortalized erythroblasts gradually exit cell cycle, decrease cell size, accumulate hemoglobin, condense nuclei and eventually give rise to enucleated hemoglobin-containing erythrocytes. Our result may ultimately lead to the development of unlimited sources of cultured RBCs for optimally-matched or personalized transfusion medicine. We compared the global gene expression profiles of different human cell types: iE: immortalized erythroblasts generated by genetic reprogramming from pCBE; pCBE: primary cord blood-derived erythroblasts; CD34+: CD34+ purified hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells from adult blood or fetal liver; TF-1: a human erythroleukemia cell line; ESC: human embryonic stem cells; iPSCs: human induced pluripotent stem cells. We want to see the relationship among these cell types. We included multiple samples (biological replicates) for most cell types.
