Here, we generated a genome-scale shRNA library targeting long intergenic noncoding RNAs (lincRNAs) in the mouse. We performed an unbiased loss-of-function study in mouse embryonic stem cells (mESCs) and identified 20 lincRNAs involved in the maintenance of pluripotency. Among these, TUNA (Tcl1 Upstream Neuron-Associated lincRNA, or megamind) was required(More)
Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are capable of giving rise to all blood cell lineages throughout adulthood, and the generation of engraftable HSCs from human pluripotent stem cells is a major goal for regenerative medicine. Here, we describe a functional genome-wide RNAi screen to identify genes required for the differentiation of embryonic stem cell (ESC)(More)
Improving the ex vivo and in vivo production of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) has the potential to address the short supply of these cells that are used in the treatment of various blood diseases and disorders. Eupalinilide E promotes the expansion of human HSPCs and inhibits subsequent differentiation, leading to increased numbers of(More)
