Interstitial cells have a crucial role in cardiac fibrosis and repair of the mammalian heart. Single-cell profiling using droplet-based technology has revolutionized the investigation of cell states and identities. Here, we present a protocol for the efficient isolation of high-quality live nucleated non-cardiomyocytes from adult murine heart, for unbiased single-cell RNA sequencing using 10× Chromium technology. This protocol has been applied to homeostatic and injured hearts from different…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
