Study Description

Chromatin accessibility discriminates stem from mature cell populations, enabling the identification of primitive stem-like cells in primary tumors, such as Glioblastoma (GBM) where self-renewing cells driving cancer progression and recurrence are prime targets for therapeutic intervention. We show, using single-cell chromatin accessibility, that primary GBMs harbor a heterogeneous self-renewing population whose diversity is captured in patient-derived glioblastoma stem cells (GSCs). In depth characterization of chromatin accessibility in GSCs identifies three GSC states: Reactive, Constructive, and Invasive, each governed by uniquely essential transcription factors and present within GBMs in varying proportions. Orthotopic xenografts reveal that GSC states associate with survival, and identify an invasive GSC signature predictive of low patient survival. Our chromatin-driven characterization of GSC states improves prognostic precision and identifies dependencies to guide combination therapies.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
RNA was extracted from GSCs using the Qiagen RNeasy Plus kit. RNA sample quality was measured by Qubit (Life Technologies) for concentration and by Agilent Bioanalyzer for RNA integrity. All samples had RIN above 9. Libraries were prepared using the TruSeq Stranded mRNA kit (Illumina). Two hundred nanograms from each sample were purified for polyA tail containing mRNA molecules using poly-T oligo attached magnetic beads, then fragmented post-purification. The cleaved RNA fragments were copied ... (Show More)
