Human induced pluripotent stem cell to macrophage differentiation

We published the protocol to differentiate human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) to macrophages. iPSC-derived macrophages (IPSDM) obtained using this protocol have demonstrated excellent functional and transcriptomic fidelity relative to human monocyte-derived macrophages (HMDM), with advantages and successful applications in disease modeling using patients-derived and CRISPR-edited iPSC lines (ATVB 2017). Through deep RNA-sequencing, the coding transcriptome (Circ Res 2015), alternative splicing events (ATVB 2016) and long non-coding RNA profiles (JAHA 2017) between isogenic IPSDM and HMDM at baseline and during activation are characterized, providing a comprehensive resource for planning IPSDM studies to model such events. This protocol and the associated resources provide a unique platform to understand human macrophage-specific functional, transcriptomic and genomic features in physiology and a broad spectrum of macrophage-relevant diseases.

The RNA-seq data of isogenic IPSDM and HMDM can be visualized in the UCSC genome browser by adding track hub using URL or through the following link. The original RNA-seq data are available from the NCBI Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) under the accession number GSE55536.
