Study Description

Several distinct differentiation protocols for deriving pancreatic progenitors (PP) from human pluripotent stem cells have been described but it remains to be shown how similar the PP are across protocols, and how well they resemble their in vivo counterparts. Here we evaluated three differentiation protocols; performed RNA and ATAC-seq on isolated PP derived with these, and compared them to fetal human pancreas populations. This enabled us to define a shared transcriptional and epigenomic signature of the PP, including several genes not previously implicated in pancreas development. Furthermore, we identified a significant and previously unappreciated cross-protocol variation of the PP through multi-omics analysis and demonstrate how such information can be applied to refine differentiation protocols for derivation of insulin-producing beta-like cells. Together, our study highlights the importance of a detailed characterization of defined cell populations derived from distinct differentiation protocols, and provides a valuable resource for exploring human pancreatic development.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
EGAD00001004823
This dataset contains 26 mapped bam files. The samples were generated with 3 different protocols for deriving pancreatic progenitors from hPSC. Three parallel differentiations were performed, all done in a hPSC NKX6.1-GFP reporter line. For each protocol there are three cellular populations: total (presort), GFP+ and GFP- . In summary: 3 differentiations x 3 protocols x 3 cellular populations. We prepared Smart-Seq2 RNA-seq libraries for the 27 samples, 1 sample failed library preparation and ... (Show More)
