Study Description

HCA Placental Infection Atlas Self-renewing human trophoblast stem cells (hTSC) can give rise to major trophoblast lineages, including syncytiotrophoblast (SCT) and extravillous trophoblast (EVT). hTSC has facilitated the study of placental development and function in vitro. Here, we aim to utilise the hTSC line (HMDMC 20/0005) to study human placental infection and inflammation. This study will provide the opportunity to better understand the pathogenesis of human placenta in the event of infection and inflammation. In brief, differentiated hTSC will be infected with relevant pathogens and stimulated with a panel of inflammatory cytokines. We will use single-cell genomic and spatial approaches to characterise cellular heterogeneity in response to infection or cytokines stimulus. In parallel, we will investigate the interaction between iPSC-derived macrophages with different trophoblast lineages during the course of infection using single-cell genomic and spatial methods.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
This dataset is part of a study that aims to compare in vivo human trophoblast differentiation into EVTs to different in vitro trophoblast organoids using single-cell and single-nuclei RNA sequencing. This specific dataset includes scRNA-seq and snRNA-seq data from trophoblast stem cells (TSCs). Trophoblast stem cell (TSC) lines BTS5 and BTS11 derived by Okae and colleagues were grown as described previously (Okae et al. 2018) together with EVT differentiation media. This study shows that the ... (Show More)
