RNA-Seq of cKIT+ sorted cells from 53-137 day old fetal testes and ovaries and RNA-Seq of TRA-1-81+ H1 and UCLA1 hESCs.

ABSTRACT: We performed RNA-Seq analyses on 15 human fetal samples at 53-137 days of development, 9 female and 5 male, and identified the transcriptional changes during the transition of human cKIT+ primordial germ cells (PGCs), the precursors of gametes, to the generation of Advanced Germline Cells. Comparing the transcriptional profile of PGCs to that of H1 and UCLA1 hESCs identifies differences between the two cell types and pinpoints molecules that can be used in the development of in vitro germ cell differentiation protocols starting from human pluripotent stem cells. RNA-Seq of cKIT+ cells analyzed from 6 biological samples for testes and 9 samples for ovaries from 53-137 days. 2 biological replicates of TRA-1-81+ cells sorted from H1 and UCLA1 hESCs. WGBS of cKIT+ cells analyzed from 4 biological samples of ovaries and 1 biological sample of testes at 57-137 days of development.

Global DNA demethylation in humans is a fundamental process that occurs in pre-implantation embryos and reversion to naive ground state pluripotent stem cells (PSCs). However, the extent of DNA methylation reprogramming in human germline cells is unknown. Here, we performed whole-genome bisulfite sequencing (WGBS) and RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq) of human prenatal germline cells from 53 to 137 days of development. We discovered that the transcriptome and methylome of human germline is distinct from  ...[more]
