Tier IV GS403354 • Genes upregulated in blood of children with COVID-19 versus MIS-C


This gene set describes genes that are up-regulated in blood of children with COVID-19, the disease caused by SARS-CoV2, versus children with the more severe MIS-C using RNAseq analysis. The genes were filtered for a p-value < 0.05 and a log fold-change of greater than 1.0 given in supplemental table 7. Genes were entered into GeneWeaver using the reported EnsEMBL identifiers. Values are log-fold change.

Downregulation of exhausted cytotoxic T cells in gene expression networks of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children.


Nature communications 08 2021, Vol 12, pp. 4854


Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) presents with fever, inflammation and pathology of multiple organs in individuals under 21 years of age in the weeks following severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. Although an autoimmune pathogenesis has been proposed, the genes, pathways and cell types causal to this new disease remain unknown. Here we perform RNA sequencing of blood from patients with MIS-C and controls to find disease-associated genes clustered in a co-expression module annotated to CD56 PUBMED: 34381049
