Study Description

Although the underlying neurobiology of major mental illness (MMI) remains unknown, emerging evidence implicates a role for oligodendrocyte-myelin abnormalities. Here, we took advantage of a large family carrying a balanced t(1;11) translocation, which substantially increases risk of MMI, to undertake both diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and cellular studies to evaluate the consequences of the t(1;11) translocation on white matter structural integrity and oligodendrocyte-myelin biology (this translocation disrupts among others the DISC1 gene which plays a crucial role in brain development). At a cellular level, we observe dysregulation of key pathways controlling oligodendrocyte development and morphogenesis in induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) case derived oligodendrocytes.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
This dataset contains high-throughput RNA-sequencing of 14 samples, each sample comprising oligodendrocytes derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells, from individuals with and without a balanced t(1;11) translocation which substantially increases risk of major mental illness. 5 samples derive from 2 control individuals, and 9 samples from 3 individuals carrying the translocation. Libraries were prepared from each total-RNA sample using the TruSeq Stranded Total RNA with Ribo-Zero kit. ... (Show More)
