Dataset Description

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is characterized by functional intratumor heterogeneity that shares many similarites with the hierarchical organization of the normal intestinal epithelium. In order to relate transcriptional subtypes to functional tumor cell heterogeneity we applied scRNA-seq to 12 patient-derived CRC spheroid cultures. We identified shared expression programs that relate to intestinal lineages and revealed metabolic signatures that are linked to cancer cell differentiation. In addition, we validated and complemented sequencing results by quantitative microscopy using live-dyes and multiplexed RNA fluorescence in situ hybridization, thereby revealing metabolic compartmentalization and potential cell-cell interactions. Finally, we demonstrate functional differences between metabolically distinct lineage subtypes that might have strong implications for future treatment strategies of CRC.
