Konturek-Ciesla A, Dhapola P, Zhang Q, Säwén P, Wan H, Karlsson G, Bryder D (2023) Temporal multimodal single-cell profiling of native hematopoiesis illuminates altered differentiation trajectories with age. Cell Rep 42(4):112304. doi: 10.1016/j.celrep.2023.112304 PMID: 36961818
Objective: Using single-cell transcriptome and epitope profiling to study hematopoiesis and the effects from aging.
Summary: The contribution from Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) to mature blood cells decline with age. The authors used transcriptome and epitope profiling to reconstruct early hematopoiesis and assessed HSC-specific lineage tracing. Their analysis identified previously uncharacterized cell populations which included multipotent progenitor cells (MPP) Ly-1 and Ly-II. Flt3 is a marker indicative of early differentiation found on MPP cells and was targeted for elimination via an antibody to Flt3 combined with Streptavidin-ZAP. This cell depletion provided evidence for the lack of self-renewal of Ly-1 and Ly-II cells in a transplantation setting and suggests that they need to be continuously replenished by upstream HSPCs.
Usage: Biotinylated anti-CD135 (clone A2F10) was combined with Streptavidin-ZAP at a 1:1 molar ratio, diluted in PBS to 0.2 mg/ml and injected into mice at 3 mg/kg.
