Cell capture and cDNA synthesis Using single cell 3' Library and Gel Bead Kit V3 (10x Genomics, 1000075) and Chromium Single Cell B Chip Kit (10x Genomics, 1000074), the cell suspension (300-600 living cells per microliter determined by Count Star) was loaded onto the Chromium single cell controller (10x Genomics) to generate single-cell gel beads in the emulsion according to the manufacturer’s protocol. In short, single cells were suspended in PBS containing 0.04% BSA. About 6,000 cells were added to each channel, and the target cell will be recovered and estimated to be about 3,000 cells. Captured cells were lysed and the released RNA were barcoded through reverse transcription in individual GEMs. Reverse transcription was performed on a S1000TM Touch Thermal Cycler (Bio Rad) at 53°C for 45 min, followed by 85°C for 5 min, and hold at 4°C. The cDNA was generated and then amplified, and quality assessed using an Agilent 4200 (performed by CapitalBio Technology, Beijing). According to the manufacture’s introduction, Single-cell RNA-seq libraries were constructed using Single Cell 3’ Library and Gel Bead Kit V3. The libraries were finally sequenced using an Illumina Novaseq6000 sequencer with a sequencing depth of at least 100,000 reads per cell with pair-end 150 bp (PE150) reading strategy (performed by CapitalBio Technology, Beijing)
