EGAD00001005767 The appearance of type 1 diabetes (T1D)-associated autoantibodies is the first and only measurable parameter to predict progression toward T1D in genetically susceptible individuals. However, autoantibodies indicate an active autoimmune reaction, wherein the immune tolerance is already broken. Therefore, there is a clear and urgent need for new biomarkers that predict the onset of the autoimmune reaction preceding auto-antibody positivity or reflect progressive b-cell destruction. Here we report the mRNA sequencing-based analysis of 306 samples including fractionated samples of CD4+ and CD8+ T cells as well as CD4, CD8 cell fractions and unfractionated PBMC samples longitudinally collected from seven children who developed beta-cell autoimmunity (case subjects) at a young age and matched control subjects.

EGAD00001005768 It was a single-cell RNA sequencing study on the PBMC samples from four Finnish children at risk of developing Type 1 diabetes and their gender age and HLA matched control children. All four Case children were positive for multiple islet specific autoantibodies and two of them also progressed to clinical disease during the follow up whereas the control children remain negative for all autoantibodies. Single-cell analysis confirmed some of the signatures obtained from the bulk data. It identified that high IL32 in case samples in the bulk RNA-seq was contributed mainly by activated T cells and NK cells. Trajectory analysis of the scRNA-seq data suggested that IL32 expression increased as the T cells moved towards activated state. Illumina HiSeq 3000 8
