Single nuclei transcriptomics in diabetic mice reveals altered brain hippocampal endothelial cell function, permeability, and behavior

Saivageethi Nuthikattu, Dragan Milenkovic, Jennifer E. Norman, Amparo C. Villablanca

To characterize the molecular mechanisms of Type 2 diabetes-associated dementia, the authors used the Evercode WT Mega in diabetic (db/db) mice’s hippocampal endothelial nuclei. They found changes to transcription factors for endothelial cell function and cell signaling associated with neuroinflammation and cognitive impairment and the downregulation of the pathways tied to cell maintenance and proliferation. The significant correlation between these findings in db/db mice and similar patterns in persons with Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia further supports the hypothesis of altered signaling pathways in hippocampal endothelial cells is involved in Type 2 diabetes neurodegeneration.

Comparative analysis of single-cell RNA sequencing methods with and without sample multiplexing

Yi Xie, Huimei Chen, Vasuki Ranjani Chellamuthu, Ahmad bin Mohamed Lajam, Salvatore Albani, Andrea Hsiu Ling Low, Enrico Petretto, Jacques Behmoaras

Parse and 10X were compared using scRNA-seq on PBMC from 2 healthy donors. Parse demonstrated better data quality with lower multiplets rates but had lower cell recovery. Parse detected 1.2-fold more genes, had better clustering performance, and greater power in distinguishing cell types with specific gene signatures. Parse also excelled in detecting longer transcripts and rare cell types.

Weber, Shalin H. Naik, Anthony Hadla, Holly E. Barker, Cassandra J. Vandenberg, Genevieve Dall, Clare L. Scott, Zachery Moore, James R. Whittle, Saskia Freytag, Sarah A. Best, Anthony T. Papenfuss, Sam W.Z. Olechnowicz, Sarah E. MacRaild, Stephen Wilcox, Peter F. Hickey, Daniela Amann-Zalcenstein, Rory Bowden

The authors compared various scRNA-Seq reagents. Parse WT v2 and 10x Flex were tested on fixed tumor nuclei. 10x Flex failed due to clogging. Parse data had more reads, genes, and fewer doublets than 10x fresh nuclei data. 10x data had high mitochondrial and ribosomal transcripts, but gene expression was concordant with Parse data. Parse WT v2 captured more biological variation and outperformed other assays.

Integrated single-cell multiomics uncovers foundational regulatory mechanisms of lens development and pathology

Jared A Tangeman, Sofia M Rebull, Erika Grajales-Esquivel, Jacob M Weaver, Stacy Bendezu-Sayas, Michael L Robinson, Salil A Lachke, Katia Del Rio-Tsonis

Using snRNA-Seq on chicken embryos, researchers profiled gene expression and chromatin accessibility associated with the chicken ocular lens development. They found three distinct populations representing major cell states (epithelial, intermediate, and fiber cell) and established a continuous trajectory from epithelial to fiber cell differentiation. The study confirmed known pathways and cataract-linked genes while uncovering new factors involved in lens development, homeostasis, and pathology.
