Study Description

We isolated naïve and memory T cells from healthy donors and cultured them in resting and stimulated conditions. We performed scRNA sequencing to assess T cell actiavtaion and perform sceQTL analysis. Major challenges for translating GWAS variants to function include identification of the disease relevant cell types in which the associated variants function. We have shown that immune-disease variants are functional in CD4+ T cell activation, and understanding how GWAS variants affect the activation efficiency is critical for development of new therapies. To perform sceQTL analysis of naïve and memory T cell activation, here we stimulated T cells and profiled single cell transcriptome at different time points following stimulation. We mapped sceQTLs affecting cell activation. This data is part of a pre-publication release.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
We isolated naive and memory CD4+ T cells from 119 healthy individuals and stimulated the cells using anti-CD3/anti-CD28 coated beads. We profiled gene expression using single cell RNA-seq (10X-Genomics 3’ v2 kit) at resting state and three time points of activation (16h, 40h and 5 days post stimulation) and mapped expression quantitative trait loci.
Illumina HiSeq 4000,Illumina MiSeq 167
Blood samples were obtained from 119 healthy individuals of British ancestry. Genomic DNA was isolated from a suspension of PBMCs from each individual using a DNA isolation kit (Qiagen). Genotyping was then performed using the Infinium CoreExome-24 (v1.3) chip (Illumina).
