Application Note: Mapping brain cell types with CARTANA in situ sequencing on the Nikon Ti2-E microscope

CARTANA has recently published an application note “Mapping brain cell types with CARTANA in situ Sequencing (ISS) on the Nikon Ti2-E microscope” in Nature Methods, October 2019. In this application, we show in details how CARTANA ISS is used for mapping transcriptional cell types within the spatial context of mouse brain sections and we thought this can benefit your research

“Spatial and temporal transcriptomics reveal microglia-astroglia crosstalk in the amyloid-β plaque cell niche of Alzheimer ’s disease ”

Chen W.T., and Craessaerts, K. et al. (BioRxiv, 2019)

In a recent study by Chen et al. on the effect of the amyloid-β plaque formation on Alzheimer’s disease progress, the use of CARTANA’s ISS technology plays a crucial role by providing insight at the single-cell level and making possible to describe induced transcriptional responses of different brain cells with spatial context. For the first time, a more conclusive evidence on the roles of amyloid plaques in the neurodegenerative process was drawn.

“Spatio-Temporal Structure of Cell Fate Decisions in Murine Neural Crest ”

Soldatov R, Kaucka M. and Kastriti M.E ( Science, 2019)

In this study of the cell fate decision progress of neural crest cells, In Situ Sequencing by Cartana proved to be a crucial complement to the standard methods of single cell sequencing. For the first time, the molecular logic of cell fate decision involved in these rapidly changing cells was revealed- by the dimensions of time and space.

Webinar: Spatial single cell sequencing of tissue samples

Join our webinar on Thursday June 13th at 16:00 [BST].

Single cell analysis technologies have enabled the currently ongoing discovery and classification of cell types in tissues. The next step is to localize the position of these cells and study the spatial relationships within cellular organization of tissues. Our new in situ sequencing (ISS) technology makes it possible to sequence barcoded RNA directly inside tissue sections, fulfilling the need to simultaneously analyze the expression of hundreds of genes within every cell of a tissue section with sub-cellular resolution and high throughput (~10cm2  tissue/week), while preserving the tissue morphology.

A spatial atlas of inhibitory cell types in mouse hippocampus”

Xiaoyan Qian et al., 

The latest publication from the Nilsson lab at Scilifelab and Harris lab at UCL in Biorxiv.
They built a spatial atlas of hippocampal CA1 cell types by in situ sequencing 99 genes in mouse brain sections and demonstrate a probabilistic cell typing method that converts in situ sequencing data into spatial cell type maps.
