Title Single-Cell RNA-seq Highlights Intra-tumoral Heterogeneity and Malignant Progression in Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma
Relevance Medical
Data Types Transcriptome or Gene expression
Organisms Homo sapiens
Description Herein, we implemented the single-cell RNA-seq to determine the transcriptomes of over 50,000 individual pancreatic cells from 24 primary PDAC tumors and 11 normal pancreas. We detected two ductal subtypes representing nonmalignant and malignant ductal cells in PDAC. The malignant cells show high CNV and heterogeneity within and between tumors, in which specific proliferation and metastatic sub-malignant cells present in PDAC patients. Computational cell trajectory analysis revealed that multiple pathways and TFs dynamic expressed during the malignant, proliferation and metastasis progress. By integrating single-cell transcriptomes with bulk expression prfiles for PDAC, we established the association of malignant ductal cells and T cell signals with clinical pathological features.
