Project description:To explore the interactions between the range of maternal and fetal placental cell types present, we profiled the transcriptomes of more than 50,000 single cells from matched first trimester samples of maternal blood and decidua, as well as fetal cells from the placenta itself. RNA-seq was done using the standard 10x chromium v2 chemistry.
Project description:We used human embryonic stem cell-derived retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) to characterize the transcriptome of 1,174 cells at the single cell level. The human embryonic stem cell line BRN3B-mCherry A81-H7 was differentiated to RGCs using a guided differentiation approach. Cells were harvested at day 36 and incubated with THY1 antibody (Miltenyi) before undergoing FACS. THY1 positive and THY1 negative cells were subsequently prepared for single cell RNA sequencing. Single cell suspensions were loaded onto 10X Genomics Single Cell 3' Chips along with the reverse transcription master mix as per the manufacturer's protocol for the Chromium Single Cell 3' v2 Library (10X Genomics; PN-120233), to generate single cell gel beads in emulsion. Libraries were then sequenced on an Illumina HiSeq 2500.
Project description:We report scRNA-seq data captured from 9,410 cells obtained from the skin of K14E7 transgenic and wildtype C57/BL6 mice. The K14E7 mouse model harbors the HPV16 E7 oncogene driven from a Keratin 14 promoter for keratinocyte-specific expression. We used scRNA-seq to detect and measure E7 transcription with unprecedented accuracy and resolution. With these data, we uncovered transcriptional differences between the individual cells; demonstrated that increased HPV16 E7 copy number is associated with increased expression of E7-induced genes; and showed that E7 expression is predominantly associated with basal keratinocytes.
Project description: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:IL-7 is a key factor in T-cell immunity and IL7R polymorphisms are implicated in autoimmune pathogenesis. IL7R mRNA is induced in stimulated monocytes in a genetically determined manner. Here we show monocyte surface and soluble IL7R (sIL7R) protein are markedly expressed in response to lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Flow cytometry of synovial fluid-derived monocytes from patients with spondyloarthritis showed an enlarged subset of IL7R+ monocytes. Single-cell RNA sequencing of ex-vivo derived monocytes from the synovial fluid and blood of patients revealed that IL7R+ monocytes at the inflammatory site have a unique transcriptional profile that markedly overlaps that induced by IL-7 in-vitro and shows similarity to the previously described ‘Mono4’ subset. These data demonstrate disease-associated genetic variants at IL7R specifically impact monocyte surface IL7R and sIL7R following innate immune stimulation, suggesting a previously unappreciated key role for monocytes in IL-7 pathway biology and IL7R-associated diseases.
Project description:We investigate the single-cell landscape of the inflammatory mouse tumor model MC38, a C57BL/6 tumor cell line derived from colon adenocarcinoma. MC38 (diluted in HBSS and matrigel) was inoculated in the right unilateral flank (in the border of positions B2 and B3) of C57BL/6 mice (ref Study 16-3384 AV). Tumors were taken one day after group-out (average 150-250 mm3 at day 0), approximately 14-19 days. Tissues were dissociated and flow sorted accordingly to obtain the following groups for 10x Chromium 5' Gene Expression Profiling. Our results indicate that the degree of clonal expansion is correlated with expression of T cell exhaustion markers, and that T cells with strong exhaustion phenotype also express high levels of activation markers, such as interferon gamma.
