- Multi-omics characterization of a diet-induced obese model of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis
Final published version, 6.58 MB, PDF document
To improve the understanding of the complex biological processes underlying the development of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), a multi-omics approach combining bulk RNA-sequencing based transcriptomics, quantitative proteomics and single-cell RNA-sequencing was used to characterize tissue biopsies from histologically validated diet-induced obese (DIO) NASH mice compared to chow-fed controls. Bulk RNA-sequencing and proteomics showed a clear distinction between phenotypes and a good correspondence between mRNA and protein level regulations, apart from specific regulatory events discovered by each technology. Transcriptomics-based gene set enrichment analysis revealed changes associated with key clinical manifestations of NASH, including impaired lipid metabolism, increased extracellular matrix formation/remodeling and pro-inflammatory responses, whereas proteomics-based gene set enrichment analysis pinpointed metabolic pathway perturbations. Integration with single-cell RNA-sequencing data identified key regulated cell types involved in development of NASH demonstrating the cellular heterogeneity and complexity of NASH pathogenesis.
