Summary of "mA RNA Methylation Maintains Hematopoietic Stem Cell Identity and Symmetric Commitment."

Stem cells balance cellular fates through asymmetric and symmetric divisions in order to self-renew or to generate downstream progenitors. Symmetric commitment divisions in stem cells are required for rapid regeneration during tissue damage and stress. The control of symmetric commitment remains poorly defined. Using single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) in combination with transcriptomic profiling of HSPCs (hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells) from control and mA methyltransferase Mettl3 conditional knockout mice, we found that mA-deficient hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) fail to symmetrically differentiate. Dividing HSCs are expanded and are blocked in an intermediate state that molecularly and functionally resembles multipotent progenitors. Mechanistically, RNA methylation controls Myc mRNA abundance in differentiating HSCs. We identified MYC as a marker for HSC asymmetric and symmetric commitment. Overall, our results indicate that RNA methylation controls symmetric commitment and cell identity of HSCs and may provide a general mechanism for how stem cells regulate differentiation fate choice.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The release of stem cells from the bone marrow into the peripheral blood circulation for the purpose of leukapheresis, prior to stem cell transplantation. Hematopoietic growth factors or chemotherapeutic agents often are used to stimulate the mobilization.

Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.

A hematopoietic growth factor and the ligand of the cell surface c-kit protein (PROTO-ONCOGENE PROTEINS C-KIT). It is expressed during embryogenesis and is a growth factor for a number of cell types including the MAST CELLS and the MELANOCYTES in addition to the HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS.

Clonal hematopoietic stem cell disorders characterized by dysplasia in one or more hematopoietic cell lineages. They predominantly affect patients over 60, are considered preleukemic conditions, and have high probability of transformation into ACUTE MYELOID LEUKEMIA.

Bipotential angio-hematopoietic stem cells that give rise to both HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS and ENDOTHELIAL CELLS.
