Regional epithelial cell diversity in the small intestine of pigs
Single cell suspensions enriched for epithelial cells were obtained from duodenum, jejunum, and ileum of a 7.5-week-old pig and subjected to single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq). scRNA-seq was performed to provide transcriptomic profiles of epithelial cells, with 695 cells annotated into 6 cell types. Deeper interrogation of data revealed previously undescribed cells in porcine intestine, and region-specific gene expression profiles within specific cell subsets. Data herein includes a .h5seurat files of the epithelial cell subsets analyzed.
