Abstract
Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a major medical problem. About 300,000 people are suffering from SCI in the US and nearly 11,000 new cases are reported annually. Currently it is not yet possible to repair the central nervous system and fully restore function. Although it is known that SCI triggers primary and secondary injury signaling cascades characterized by early and prolonged inflammatory responses and cell death, the understanding of the molecular mechanisms is still limited. Therefore, the analyses of transcriptome changes during SCI could provide key insights into the mechanisms and pathways involved in SCI pathology, which will be extremely useful for improving the efficiency of stem cell therapies and pharmacological screening. We applied RNA-seq technology to characterize the temporal and spatial changes of global gene expression during SCI in mouse models. Tissue samples from acute phase (2 days and 7 days after injury) and chronic phase (1 month and 3 months) were sequenced to reflect the temporal change. Samples from rostral site, caudal site and injury site were sequenced to reflect the spatial property of SCI. We have sequenced 23 RNA-seq libraries and generated ~350 GB of data. We then developed a system for Next Generation Sequencing Data analysis by integrating open source algorithms into a high-throughput pipeline. By applying this analysis pipeline to the SCI data, we have systematically characterized the transcriptome during SCI with the goal of identifying pathways and key regulatory genes critical in SCI and constructing regulatory networks. We also characterized injury stage- specific gene and splice isoform expression. Our study provides a comprehensive reference data set that will guide further testing of therapy targets.
