This paper, a collaboration with the Cardiometabolic Disorders Group at Amgen, describes a scalable method to derive sinoatrial node pacemaker cardiomyocytes (PCs) from human induced pluripotent stem cells that recapitulates differentiation into distinct PC subtypes, including SAN Head, SAN Tail, transitional zone cells, and sinus venosus myocardium. Single cell (sc) RNA-sequencing, sc-ATAC-sequencing, and trajectory analyses were used to define epigenetic and transcriptomic signatures of each cell type, and to identify novel transcriptional pathways important for PC subtype differentiation. Integration of the multi-omics datasets with genome wide association studies uncovered cell type-specific regulatory elements that associated with heart rate regulation and susceptibility to atrial fibrillation. Taken together, these datasets validate a novel, robust, and realistic in vitro platform that will enable deeper mechanistic exploration of human cardiac pacemaking and arrhythmia. In the future, we will use this platform for functional genomics and for detailed studies of SAN development, without the limitations imposed by in vivo models.

G-Protein Coupled Receptors in the Sinoatrial Node

Although G-protein coupled receptors are among the most common targets of FDA-approved therapeutics, the full spectrum of GPCRs that are differentially expressed in the SAN has not been thoroughly explored. In this paper we use RNA sequencing datasets published by our lab and other groups to catalog differentially expressed GPCRs in the SAN, including several orphan receptors with no known ligands and some receptors with ligands that have established chronotropic effects but through undefined mechanisms. We focus on a detailed characterization of the cholecystokinin-A signaling pathway, whose receptor (Cckar) is expressed in pacemaker cardiomyocytes while the ligand is expressed in the cardiac nervous system and in some SAN fibroblasts. Application of the ligand to isolated pacemaker cardiomyocytes slows spontaneous firing. We are grateful to our colleague Di Lang at UCSF for collaborating on this project. This work could form a foundation for future studies of GPCR signaling in the SAN and potentially for development of novel drugs to affect SAN function. 


Epigenetic Profile of the Sinoatrial Node

Galang G, Mandla R, Ruan H, Jung C, Sinha T, Stone NR, Wu RS, Mannion BJ, Allu PKR, Chang K, Rammohan A, Shi MB, Pennacchio LA, Black BL, Vedantham VEpigenetic Profiling of Cardiac Pacemaker Cells Reveals a Conserved Isl1 Enhancer That Regulates Sinoatrial Node Development and FunctionCirculation Research. 2020. 127:1502-1518

This paper builds on our previous work with pacemaker cardiomyocytes (PCs) by defining a set of cell type-specific regions of open chromatin using ATAC-seq on sorted mouse PCs labelled with fluorescent reporters. Using this ATAC-seq dataset, we identified and validated the first known SAN-specific cis-regulatory elements, including a deeply conserved enhancer that regulates the expression of Isl1 specifically in SAN tissue. Deletion of the Isl1-SAN-Enhancer from the mouse genome reduced Isl1 expression in the SAN and disrupted SAN development and function. Remarkably, the mouse SAN enhancer was active in pacemaker tissue in zebrafish, and single nucleotide polymorphisms near the syntenic element in the human genome are associated with human resting heart rate, providing evidence of the deep conservation of gene regulatory networks important for cardiac pacemaking.

Gene Expression Profile of the Sinoatrial Node

*Vedantham V, G Galang, M Evangelista, *RC Deo and D Srivastava. RNA Sequencing of Mouse Sinoatrial Node Reveals an Upstream Regulatory Role for Islet-1 in Cardiac Pacemaker Cells. Circulation Research. 2015.  116:797-803.  *co-corresponding authors.

In this article, we used laser capture microdissection at several stages during mouse heart development to isolate sinoatrial node (SAN) tissue and right atrial tissue for comparative transcriptomic profiling. We found that pacemaker cardiomyocytes (PC) engage a hybrid gene expression program with neuronal and cardiomyocyte features, endowing these cells with their unique properties. Using a loss of function approach, we demonstrated that the transciption factor Islet-1 is persistently expressed in PCs and is required for activation of this distinctive gene program. This article was the first to comprehensively profile SAN gene expression and to demonstrate a role for Islet-1 in the SAN, a finding confirmed by this contemporaneous work from Sylvia Evans's Lab at UCSD.
