Cross-tissue transcriptomic analysis of human secondary lymphoid organ residing ILC3 reveals a default quiescent state in the absence of inflammation

A cross tissue transcriptional comparison of human ILC3 isolated from non-inflamed lymph nodes (LN) and spleens, inflamed tonsils and the peripheral blood (PB). Using uniform gating and high-purity cell-sorting, ILC3 were sorted as Lineage(CD3,CD19,CD34,CD14,CD94)-CD45intCD127+CRTH2-CD117+. From LN, spleen, tonsils and PB, NKp44- ILC3 were isolated and, in addition, NKp44+ ILC3 were sorted from spleen and tonsils. RNA quality was measured on a RNA 6000 Pico Kit (Agilent Technologies) using a 2100 Bioanalyzer (Agilent Technologies). 100 pg high-quality RNA was isolated and cDNA was generated using the SMART-Seq (v3) Ultra Low Input RNA Kit (Clontech) with 15 cycles of amplification. Amplified and Covaris-fragmented cDNA was quality-checked on a High Sensitivity DNA chip (Agilent Technologies) and further processed according the TruSeq Nano DNA Library Preparation Kit (Illumina). Data was processed as follows: SMARTer adapters were trimmed with cutadapt and the resulting sequences were aligned to the human RefSeq transcriptome using 14 TopHat2 (Kim et al., 2013). Normalization and quantification was performed using Cufflinks (Trapnell et al., 2012). FPKM counts were determined per gene with HTSeq-count.
