Single-nucleus RNA-seq and spatial transcriptomic assays of the cardiac tissues from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy patients

The cardiac IVS tissues of HCM patients who underwent surgical myectomy were collected for snRNA-seq (n=10; 10 samples) and spatial transcriptomic assays (n=6; 8 tissue sections). As a control group, cardiac IVS tissues from healthy donors of heart transplants (n=2; 3 samples) were also subjected to snRNA-seq. The control group were ethnicity-and sex-matched with the HCM group (Chinese, male). After quality control, a total of 55,122 nuclei (HCM: 39,183; HEALTHY: 15,939) were obtained. For the spatial transcriptomic data, 2,927 to 4,849 spots were detected to be over tissue in the four sections.
