Visualizing GCG expression across human pancreas:


Boxplots summarising GCG expression levels across the 7 major cell types (shown in different colors) for every donor (shown in different shades of each color). The first 6 boxes correspond to healthy individuals (H1 to H6) and the last 4 to T2D individuals (T2D1 to T2D4). ε-cells were captured only in 5 donors (H2, H3, H6, T2D1, T2D4).
t-SNE representations colored according to GCG expression levels of: (Left) all sequenced cells (n=2,209) or (Right) endocrine cells only (n=1,554). Compare with the corresponding t-SNE graphs/maps shown below (reproduced from Figure 1 of the paper).





Reproducing Figs 1B and 1E of Segerstolpe, Palasantza et al. to show the placement of cell types onto the t-SNE maps.
