Human ESC-derived hemogenic endothelial cells undergo distinct waves of endothelial to hematopoietic transition

Author(s): Rafii, Shahin; Kloss, Christopher C.; Butler, Jason M.; Ginsberg, Michael; Gars, Eric; Lis, Raphael; Zhan, Qiansheng; Josipovic, Pavle; Ding, Bi-Sen; Xiang, Jenny; Elemento, Olivier; Zaninovic, Nikica; Rosenwaks, Zev; Sadelain, Michel; Rafii, Jeremie A.; James, Daylon

Several studies have demonstrated that hematopoietic cells originate from endothelium in early development; however, the phenotypic progression of progenitor cells during human embryonic hemogenesis is not well described. Here, we define the developmental hierarchy among intermediate populations of hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs) derived from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs).

Genetic variation in metabolic phenotypes: study designs and applications

Author(s): Suhre, Karsten; Gieger, Christian

Many complex disorders are linked to metabolic phenotypes. Revealing genetic influences on metabolic phenotypes is key to a systems-wide understanding of their interactions with environmental and lifestyle factors in their aetiology, and we can now explore the genetics of large panels of metabolic traits by coupling genome-wide association studies and metabolomics.
