GSE54154: RNA-seq analysis of diabetes induced changes in macrophage transcriptome

Bulk RNA sequencing

Macrophage dysfunction and polarization plays key role in chronic inflammation associated with diabetes and its complications. However, the effect of diabetes on macrophage transcriptome including long non-coding RNAs is not known. Here, we analyzed global changes in transcriptome of bone marrow macrophages isolated from type 2 diabetic db/db mice and control littermates db/+ mice using high throughput RNA-seq technique. Data analysis showed that expression of genes relevant to fibrosis, cell adhesion and inflammation were altered in diabetic db/db mice relative to control db/+ mice. Furthermore, expression of several known and novel long non coding RNAs and nearby genes was altered in db/db mice. Gene ontology and IPA showed activation of signaling netwroks relevant to fibrosis, cell adhesion and inflammatory pathways . This study for the first time demonstrated that diabetes profoundly affects macrophage transcriptome including expression of long non coding RNAs and altered the levels of genes relevant to diabetes complications.
