Study Description

Analysis of mutational signatures caused by DNA repair defects in human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. A reference human iPS cell line will be used for genetic manipulation to introduce homozygous knockouts of 100 genes known to be involved in or connected to DNA repair or DNA editing. Following a defined period of growth after homozygous knockout of each gene, sub clones will be generated and sequenced. The progenitor “parental” IPS cell line will be used to generate reference sequence data, in order to determine the mutational signature acquired due to the gene knockout. This is a pilot study to investigate the effects of oxygen conditions and growth period on mutations acquired

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
Mutational signatures are imprints of cell-intrinsic and extrinsic pathophysiological processes that have occurred through tumorigenesis. Experimental efforts to explore signature etiologies have produced a compendium of signatures of exogenous mutagens previously. Here, we unearth major sources of endogenous DNA damage and the genes that are critical to mitigating this innate stream of DNA damage under normal, physiological circumstances. We performed whole genome sequencing of 173 subclones ... (Show More)
