Single cell RNA-seq of WTC-CRISPRi human induced pluripotent stem cells
ABSTRACT: We performed 3' single-cell RNA-seq using the 10X Genomics Chromium (version 1 chemistry) system on ~19,000 undifferentiated human IPSCs to explore the cellular heterogeneity of a seemingly homogeneous cell population.
Project description:Mice intranasally exposed to a low dose of LPS (i.e., 100 ng) are prone to develop features of allergic asthma upon subsequent exposure to house dust mites (HDM) allergens, while mice exposed to vehicle or 100 µg LPS do not develop such features. In order to understand the mechanisms that promote allergic asthma, we sought to characterize the lung neutrophils, which are massively recruited after LPS exposure, by single cell RNA-Seq.
Project description:We sought to evaluate in an unbiased way the heterogeneity of lung interstitial macrophages and their relationship with alveolar macrophages, lung Ly-6Chi classical monocytes and Ly-6Clo patrolling monocytes, by single cell RNA-Seq.
Project description:Endothelial cells are generated independently in the yolk sac, allantois and embryo proper. We dissected embryos from embryonic day 8.25 and captured individual cells from each of these positions within the embryo to investigate how their transcriptional signatures differ. Single-cell libraries were prepared for sequencing using the Smart-seq2 protocol.
Project description:We used the scRNA-seq to characterize disease-related heterogeneity within cell populations of macrophages/monocytes in the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid from West Highland white terriers either healthy or affected with canine idioapthic pulmonary fibrosis. The disease is still not well understood, occurs in old West Highland white terriers and results from deposition of fibrotic tissue in the lung parenchyma causing respiratory failure.
Project description:In dogs, a species for which markers of cell populations are often limiting, we sought to evaluate in an unbiased way the heterogeneity of cell subpopulations in the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid of healthy dogs, by single-cell RNA-sequencing.
Project description:Seed size is important to crop domestication and natural selection and is affected by the balance of maternal and paternal genomes in endosperm. Endosperm, like placenta in mammals, provides reserves to the developing embryo. Interploidy crosses disrupt the genome balance in endosperm and alter seed size. Specifically, paternal-excess crosses (2 × 4) delay endosperm cellularization (EC) and produce larger seeds, whereas maternal-excess crosses (4 × 2) promote precocious EC and produce smaller seeds. The mechanisms for responding to the parental genome dosage imbalance and for gene expression changes in endosperm are unknown. In plants, RNA polymerase IV (PolIV or p4) encoded by NRPD1a is required for biogenesis of a major class of 24-nt small interfering RNAs (also known as p4-siRNAs), which are predominately expressed in developing endosperm. Here we show that p4-siRNA accumulation depends on the maternal genome dosage, and maternal p4-siRNAs target transposable elements (TEs) and TE-associated genes (TAGs) in seeds. The p4-siRNAs correlate negatively with expression levels of AGAMOUS-LIKE (AGL) genes in endosperm of interploidy crosses. Moreover, disruption of maternal NRPD1a expression is associated with p4-siRNA reduction and AGL up-regulation in endosperm of reciprocal crosses. This is unique genetic evidence for maternal siRNAs in response to parental genome imbalance and in control of transposons and gene expression during endosperm development. 8 samples: 2x X 2x seed,leaf; 4x X 4x seed,leaf; 2x X 4x seed,leaf; 4x X 2x seed,leaf.
Project description:Activation of CD8+ T cells depends exquisitely on the affinity of the T cell receptor (TCR) for a peptide MHC (pMHC) ligand complex. Here, we activated OT-I transgenic CD8+ T cells with pure peptide and examined early activation responses by single-cell RNA-sequencing. T cells were activated with the high affinity OT-I cognate peptide (N4=SIINFEKL) for 1, 3 or 6 hours, or with reduced affinity peptides (T4=SIITFEKL and G4=SIIGFEKL) or the non-binding peptide (NP68=ASNENMDAM) for 6 hours. Cells were then sorted into 96-well plates by FACS and RNA was sequenced following an adapted Smart-Seq2 protocol.
Project description:Mucosal-Associated Invariant T cells have a unique specificity for the microbial metabolite 5-OP-RU presented by the non-classical presentation molecule MR1. Upon activation, they release cytotoxic mediators and engage an antimicrobial activity. As a subset of T lymphocytes, MAIT development occurs in the thymus where they acquire their effector phenotype under the control of the key transcription factor ZBTB16. This particular maturation process is in contrast with conventional T cells that egress the thymus with a naive phenotype before populating the secondary lymphoid organs, and the molecular events driving the MAIT lineage decision are poorly known. In the present work, we evaluated the transcriptional events and the role of the slam-SAP pathway on the lineage decision of MR1-restricted T cells by single cell RNAseq. MAIT cells undergoing positive selection were FACS-sorted with a MR1:5-OP-RU labeled tetramer, from thymus of wild-type and sapKO mice. Their transcriptomes were captured using a 10x chromium system.
Project description:Single-cell RNA-seq libraries were generated from human PBMCs that were incubated with anti-HER2/CD3 TDB in the presence of KPL-4 cells. This dataset only contains the metadata and processed data. Raw data can be accessed via the EGA accession EGAS00001003734
Project description:iPS cell derived neural stem cells and differentiated cells from one healthy individual and one indivudal carrying NRXN1-a biallelic deletion investigated with single cell RNA-sequencing. Celltype characterization and comparison revealed variations between stem cell identity and in cell differentiation outcome across the two individuals.
