    Integrative analysis of scRNA-seq and scATAC-seq revealed transit-amplifying thymic epithelial cells expressing autoimmune regulator

    Takahisa MIyao et al.
    The combination of single-cell analysis and cell fate mapping studies evidenced the presence of AIRE-expressing transit-amplifying thymic epithelial cells, which differentiate into mature medullary thymic epithelial cells expressing tissue-specific antigens.

    A functional screen of RNA binding proteins identifies genes that promote or limit the accumulation of CD138+ plasma cells

    David J Turner et al.
    A genetic screening approach identifies RNA binding proteins that enhance or inhibit the accumulation of CD138+ plasma cells in vitro, and chimeric mouse models demonstrate that YTHDF2 promotes the accumulation of antibody secreting cells in vivo.
