Single cell RNA-sequencing reveals the cellular senescence of placental mesenchymal stem/stromal cell in preeclampsia.

Placenta 2024 April 3
INTRODUCTION: Preeclampsia (PE) is a severe obstetric complication closely associated with placental dysfunction. Placental mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (PMSCs) modulate placental development while PE PMSCs are excessively senescent to disturb placental function. Nevertheless, the senescence mechanism of PE PMSCs remains unclear.

METHODS: PE-related single-cell RNA sequencing datasets (GSE173193), data of chip detection (GSE99007) and bulk transcriptome RNA sequencing datasets (GSE75010) were extracted from the GEO database. Firstly, the functional enrichment analyses of the differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in PMSCs were conducted. Then, the clusters of PE PMSCs were distinguished according to the expressions of senescence-related genes (SRGs) by consensus clustering analysis. Cell cycle analysis, senescence β-galactosidase, Transwell, and tube formation were conducted. Next, the expressions of the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASPs) were displayed. The characteristic genes of PE were screened by the least absolute shrinkage and selection operator analysis. CTSZ was suppressed in PMSCs and the cellular senescence levels were evaluated.

RESULTS: In this study, The DEGs in PMSCs were closely associated with cellular senescence. The score of SRGs was significantly higher and most of the SASPs were abnormally expressed in the senescent group. Seven characteristic genes of PE were identified, thereinto, CTSZ reduction may accelerate the senescence in PMSCs in vitro.

DISCUSSION: Combined with bioinformatic analysis and lab experiments, our study emphatically revealed the abnormal cellular senescence in PE PMSCs, in which CTSZ, one of the PE characteristic genes, regulated the cellular senescence levels in PMSCs. These findings might help to deepen the understanding of the senescence mechanism of PMSCs in PE.
