ScRNA-seq analysis of cell subpopulations of the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid of healthy dogs
ABSTRACT: 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.
Single-cell mRNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq) is a technique which enables unbiased, high throughput and high-resolution transcriptomic analysis of the heterogeneity of cells within a population. This recent technique has been described in humans, mice and other species in various conditions to cluster cells in populations and identify new subpopulations, as well as to study the gene expression of cells in various tissues, conditions and origins. In dogs, a species for which markers of cell population ...[more]
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: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:Graft-versus-host-disease (GvHD) is the main complication of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Here we report studies of a patient with chronic GVHD (cGVHD) carrying persistent CD4+ T cell clonal expansion which harbored somatic mTOR, NFKB2, and TLR2 mutations. Functional analysis of the discovered mTOR mutation indicated a gain-of-function alteration and activation of both mTORC1 and mTORC2 signaling pathways leading to increased cell proliferation and decreased apoptosis. Single-cell RNA sequencing and real-time impedance measurements supported increased cytotoxicity of mutated CD4+ T cells. High throughput drug-sensitivity testing suggested mutations induce resistance to mTOR inhibitors but increase sensitivity for HSP90 inhibitors. Our findings suggest that somatic mutations may contribute to aberrant T cell proliferations and participate in the persistent immune activation in cGVHD paving the way for novel targeted therapies.
Project description:Single-cell transcriptome profiling using a 3' droplet-based platform (Chromium,10x Genomics) of CD11b+ cells isolated from the spleen of control and tumor-bearing mice, treated or not with IFN gene therapy.
Project description:Single-cell transcriptome profiling using a 3' droplet-based platform (Chromium,10x Genomics) of human CD45+ leukocytes isolated from leukemic HuSGM3 mice infused with CD19.28z CAR-T cells, two days after cytokine release syndrome (CRS) onset and 5 days later.
Project description:To obtain an unbiased characterization of the resident and infiltrating immune cell populations of mouse kidneys in healthy and diseased states, we performed single cell RNA-seq of facs-sorted CD45+ immune cells and CD4+ T cells from naïve and injured kidneys, at selected time points.
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:Over 250 million people suffer from schistosomiasis, a tropical disease caused by parasitic flatworms known as schistosomes. To unravel the transcriptional signatures for the larval stage of this parasite, we perform single-cell RNA sequencing on two-day old schistosomula. We described 15 populations and spatially validated our results using FISH.
Project description:Transcriptome data from zebrafish single cells from guts from either from Tg(lck:EGFP) rag1-/-mutant or wild-type zebrafish were isolated and single cell suspensions were prepared as described in protocol section. Three zebrafish, per each condition (i.e. zebrafish intraperitoneally injected with PBS, lyophilised Anisakis simplex or inactivated Vibrio anguillarum), were used to collect the total of 12,000 lck+ cells (4000 per zebrafish) for 10x experiment.
Project description:Metastatic uveal melanoma generally responds poorly to immunotherapy. The aim here was to sequence tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes from uveal melanoma metastases to study their phenotypes and T-cell receptor (TCR) clonotypes. We performed paired single-cell transcriptome and TCR sequencing using the 10x Genomics platform of IL2-expanded tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes from 7 liver and 1 subcutaneous metastasis.
