Study Description

Background: Hepatocyte-like cells (HLCs) differentiated from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have emerged as a promising cell culture model to study metabolism, biotransformation, viral infections and genetic liver diseases. However the derivation of iPSCs is restricted by ethical and procedural constraints. Furthermore, incomplete HLC differentiation remains a major challenge. iPSC may carry-on a tissue of origin dependent expression memory influencing iPSC differentiation into different cell types. If liver derived iPSCs (Li-iPSCs) maintain a liver specific gene expression profile is not known. It is also not known, if Li-iPSCs would allow the generation of more fully differentiated HLCs.Methods: Primary liver cells (PLCs) were expanded from liver needle biopsies and reprogrammed into Li-iPSCs using a non-integrative Sendai virus-based system. Li-iPSCs were differentiated into HLCs using established differentiation protocols. The HLC phenotype was characterized at the protein, functional and transcriptional level. RNA sequencing data were generated from the originating ... (Show More)

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
We performed RNA-seq on polyA-enriched mRNA isolated from the original liver biopsy tissue (Liver tissue), primary liver cells (PLC), hepatocyte-like cells (HLCs) differentiated from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), and iPSCs. RNA libraries were prepared using the Illumina TruSeq Stranded mRNA Sample Preparation protocol (ref. RS-122-2101, Illumina, San Diego CA, US) and sequenced using the Illumina HiSeq2500 platform following the manufacturer’s protocol. Samples were sequenced in ... (Show More)
