In situ RNA sequencing in fixed cells and tissues
In situ RNA sequencing could help reveal genetic
heterogeneity in complex samples for clinical diagnostics. In fresh-frozen
cells or tissues, single-cell RNA sequence information was derived from
sequencing by ligation after padlock probing and rolling-circle
amplification. Control in situ experiments on the human b-actin
transcript showed an average accuracy of 98.6%. In sections of frozen tissue
from breast cancer biopsies, 39 probes, including 21 from a prognostic gene
panel, were combined in a single multiplex reaction, and the results were
validated by comparison to published RNA-sequencing data.
Next steps could include optimization of the workflow for handling large
numbers of samples and comparison of this method directly with bulk
expression profiling for prognostic evaluation.
