description:
Single-cell sequencing methods have emerged as powerful tools for identification of heterogeneous cell types within defined brain regions. Application of single-cell techniques to study the transcriptome of activated neurons can offer insight into molecular dynamics associated with differential neuronal responses to a given experience. Through evaluation of common whole-cell and single-nuclei RNA-sequencing (snRNA-seq) methods, here we show that snRNA-seq faithfully re-capitulates transcriptional patterns associated with experience-driven induction of activity, including immediate early genes (IEGs) such as Fos, Arc, and Egr1. SnRNA-seq of mouse dentate granule cells reveals large-scale changes in the activated neuronal transcriptome after brief novel environment exposure, including induction of MAPK pathway genes . In addition, we observe a continuum of activation states, revealing a pseudo-temporal pattern of activation from gene expression alone. In summary, snRNA-seq of activated neurons enables the examination of gene expression beyond IEGs,allowing for novel insights into neuronal activation patterns in vivo. Overall design: Examination of 1) 82 whole-cell (WC) dentate granule cells from a PTZ- or saline-treated mouse, and 2) 23 single-nuclei (SN) from dentate granule cells of a homecage (HC) mouse or 96 nuclei from a mouse exposed to a novel environment (NE)
