(A) Schematic of experimental timeline; WT-GFP and ROCK1- or CDH1-CRISPRi hiPSCs were mixed and re-plated prior to KD induction. Different cell populations were isolated by FACS for mRNA extraction on days 1, 3, and 6 after KD induction. (n = 3 per condition). (B) Representative scatter plot of a FACS-sorted population of mCherry +cells (indicating KD induction) with >98% purity. (C,D) Plots of specific mRNA expression changes at days 1, 3, and 6 in KD cell populations that have been mixed with WT. (* and # indicate significance, p<0.05). (E,F) Heat maps display fold change expression of genes found to display significant changes in ROCK1 or CDH1 KD cells mixed with WT-GFP hiPSCs when compared to time-matched, off-target control hiPSCs. Grey color indicates non-significance. Significance (p<0.05, n = 3) was determined using a one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) followed by post-hoc pairwise comparisons by Tukey’s tests to determine the effect of mixing populations, the effect of solely KD, and the effect of KD within a mixed population.
