Abstract

T cells have the potential to maintain immunological memory and self-tolerance by recognizing antigens from pathogens or tumors. In pathological situations, failure to generate de novo T cells causes immunodeficiency resulting in acute infections and complications. Hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) transplantation constitutes a valuable option to restore proper immune function. However, delayed T cell reconstitution is observed compared to other lineages. To overcome this difficulty, we developed a new approach to identify populations with efficient lymphoid reconstitution properties. To this end, we use a DNA barcoding strategy based on the insertion into a cell chromosome of a lentivirus (LV) carrying a non-coding DNA fragment named barcode (BC). These will segregate through cell divisions and be present in cells' progeny. The remarkable characteristic of the method is that different cell types can be tracked simultaneously in the same mouse. Thus, we in vivo barcoded LMPP and CLP progenitors to test their ability to reconstitute the lymphoid lineage. Barcoded progenitors were co-grafted in immuno-compromised mice and their fate analyzed by evaluating the BC composition in transplanted mice. The results highlight the predominant role of LMPP progenitors for lymphoid generation and reveal valuable novel insights to be reconsidered in clinical transplantation assays.
