Study TitleParallelized multidimensional analytic framework, PAMAF, applied to mammalian cells uncovers novel regulatory principles in EMT
Study SummaryPainting a holistic picture of disease etiology will require longitudinal systems-scale reconstruction of the multitiered architecture of eukaryotic signaling. As opposed to ‘one omic at a time’, which provides an incomplete view on disease mechanisms, here we developed an experimental and analytics framework, PAMAF, to simultaneously acquire and analyze twelve omic modalities from the same set of samples, i.e., protein abundance from whole-cells, nucleus, exosomes, secretome and membrane; peptidome; N-glycosylation, phosphorylation; metabolites; mRNA, miRNA; and, in parallel, single-cell transcriptomes. We applied PAMAF in a well-studied in vitro model of TGFβ-induced EMT to generate the EMT-ExMap dataset, cataloguing >61,000 expression profiles (>10,000 differential) over 12 days. PAMAF revealed that EMT is more complex than currently understood and identified numerous stage-specific mechanisms and vulnerabilities not captured in literature. Broad application of PAMAF will provide unprecedented insights into multifaceted biological processes relevant to human health and disease.

Collection ID:CO001931
Collection Summary:Human breast epithelial MCF10A cells were kindly provided by Prof. Senthil Muthuswamy (Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School). Cells were cultured in DMEM/F-12 supplemented with 5% Horse serum, EGF 20 ng/mL (Sigma), Insulin 10 μg/mL (Sigma), Hydrocortisone 0.5 mg/mL (Sigma), Cholera toxin 100 ng/mL (Sigma), 100 units/mL Penicillin and 100 μg/mL Streptomycin (HyClone) and grown at 37C in a humidified incubator with 5% CO2. To induce EMT, cells were stimulated with 10 ng/mL TGF-β1 (Invivogen) and treatments were staggered such that all cells (plates) were harvested at the same time. To minimize cross-contamination (EV & Sec) and promiscuous background signaling (particularly for Phos), cells were cultured in serum-free conditions for 16 hours prior to harvesting. At the time of harvest, conditioned media were first transferred to fresh 50 mL tubes and kept on ice. Cells were washed once with ice-cold PBS and scraped off the plates in ice-cold PBS. Each sample was then distributed into multiple aliquots for multi-omics extractions, centrifuged at 800×g for 5 minutes at 4°C and stored as dry pellets at –80°C. Live cells were imaged in their culture vessels before harvesting using ZOE fluorescent cell imager (Bio-Rad).
