Viral infection causes multiple forms of human cancer, and human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the primary factor in cervical carcinomas. Single-cell RNA-seq studies highlight the tumor heterogeneity of most cancers, but virally induced tumors have not been studied. HeLa is a well characterized HPV+ cervical cancer cell line. We developed a new high-throughput platform to prepare single-cell RNA on a nanoliter scale based on a customized microwell chip. Using this method, we successfully amplified full-length transcripts of 669 single HeLa S3 cells, 40 of which were randomly selected to perform single-cell RNA sequencing. On the basis of this data, we obtained a comprehensive understanding of the heterogeneity of HeLa S3 cells in terms of gene expression, alternative splicing, and gene fusions. Furthermore, by co-expression analysis we can identify a high diversity of HPV-18 gene expression and splicing at the single-cell level. In addition to providing a characterization of the transcriptome of HeLa S3 cells at the single-cell level, our study demonstrates the power of single-cell RNA-seq analysis of virally infected cells and cancers.
