GSE58916: RNA Sequencing Quantitative Analysis of cell lines derived from tumours from two mouse models of human osteosarcoma that recapitulate clinically distinct human osteosarcoma subtypes.
Bulk RNA sequencing
Purpose: Osteosarcoma (OS) is the most common primary bone malignancy. OS consists of several subtypes including fibroblastic, osteoblastic and chondroblastic OS. We have developed genetically engineered mouse models of human OS that recapitulate two distinct subtypes, fibroblastic (Osx-CreLox p53-/- Rb-/-) and osteoblastic (Osx-Cre shRNA p53-/-) OS. The goal of this study was to identify transcriptional differences that distinguish the two subtypes.; Methods: mRNA profiles of cell lines derived from tumours from Osx-Cre p53fl/fl Rbfl/fl (fibroblastic OS) and Osx-Cre shRNA TRE-p53.1224 pRbfl/fl (osteoblastic OS) mouse models were generated by RNA sequencing, in triplicate, using Illumina HiSeq2000. The sequence reads that passed quality filters were analyzed at the transcript level with TopHat followed by Cufflinks.; Results: Using an optimized data analysis workflow, we mapped about 30 million sequence reads per sample to the mouse genome (build mm9) and identified 12,436 transcripts in the tumours of Osx-Cre p53fl/fl Rbfl/fl and 12,074 Osx-Cre shRNA TRE-p53.1224 pRbfl/fl with the TopHat workflow. RNA-seq data confirmed stable expression of 25 known housekeeping genes.; Conclusions: Our study represents a detailed analysis of OS subtype transcriptomes generated by RNA-seq technology.
