Study Description

While SARS-CoV-2 infection causes mild respiratory disease in most individuals, a small group of patients develops severe COVID-19. Dysfunctional innate immune responses have been identified to contribute to differences in COVID-19 severity, but the key regulators are still unknown. Here, we present an integrative single-cell epigenetics, transcriptomic, and genetics analysis of peripheral blood mononuclear cells from hospitalized and convalescent COVID-19 patients. In classical monocytes, we identified 41.3% of significantly up-regulated genes in hospitalized COVID-19 patients potentially induced by differential chromatin accessibility. Sub-clustering and motif-enrichment analyses of monocytes reveal disease condition-specific regulation by transcription factors, such as C/EBPs and SPI1, and their targets, including a long-noncoding RNA LUCAT1, which further regulates interferon responses and is associated with the need for oxygen supply of COVID-19 patients. The interaction between C/EBPs and LUCAT1 was validated through loss-of-function experiments. Finally, we investigated ... (Show More)

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
Single-cell RNA-seq, single-cell ATAC-seq, and genotypes used in the analysis for the study "Altered and allele-specific open chromatin landscape reveal epigenetic and genetic regulators of innate immunity in COVID-19". The RNA-seq and ATAC-seq are raw data in FASTQ format while the genotypes are in the VCF format which was filtered and imputed (more details are available in the main text of the study).
