Study Description

Complex germline genomic rearrangements can affect many genes and regulatory elements, but the precise mechanisms that caused the phenotype of patients with such rearrangements are often unknown. To dissect the impact of germline chromothripsis in a relevant developmental context, we performed trio-based RNA expression analysis on blood cells,induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells and iPS-cell derived neuronal cells from a patient with de novo germline chromothripsis and both healthy parents. In addition, we performed Hi-C on iPS cell-derived neural progenitors of the patient and the father to study the effects of the chromothripsis rearrangements on the architecture of the derivative chromosomes. We demonstrate that a combination of patient-derived iPS cell differentiation and trio-based molecular profiling is a powerful approach to improve the interpretation of pathogenic complex genomic rearrangements.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
This dataset contains RNA-seq and Hi-C data files of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells and iPS cell-derived neural progenitors (NPCs) derived from a germline chromothripsis patient and both parents. iPS cells of the patient (cell lines 14 and 15), the father (lines 23 (with two replicates) and 32) and mother (line 30) were differentiated to NPCs and RNA was collected on day 0, day 7 and day 10 of differentiation. In addition, Hi-C data for two iPS cell-derived NPC lines from the patient (14 ... (Show More)
