Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most frequent neurodegenerative disease amongst the elderly. The SNPs rs429358 and rs7412 in the APOE gene are the most common risk factor for sporadic AD, and there are three different alleles commonly referred to as APOE-ε2, APOE-ε3 and APOE-ε4. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) hold great promise to model AD as such cells can be differentiated in vitro to the required cell type. Here we report the use of CRISPR/Cas9 technology employed on iPSCs from a healthy individual with an APOE-ε3/ε4 genotype to obtain isogenic APOE-ε2/ε2, APOE-ε3/ε3, APOE-ε4/ε4 lines as well as an APOE-knock-out line.

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia. Mutations in the gene PSEN1 encoding Presenilin1 are known to cause familial forms of AD with early age of onset. The most common mutation...
Two isogenic hiPSC lines, ZIPi013-B and ZIPi013-E, were generated by reprogramming fetal dermal fibroblasts with episomal vectors. Previously, the same fetal fibroblasts were reprogrammed multiple tim...
We describe the generation and characterization of 5 human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines derived from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of healthy adult individuals. The PBMCs we...
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia, affecting millions of people worldwide. Mutations in the genes PSEN1, PSEN2 or APP are known to cause familial forms of AD with an early a...
The human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) line RP1-FiPS4F1 generated from the patient with autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa (arRP) caused by homozygous Ser331Cysfs*5 mutation in Mer tyro...
Objectives 1. Establish an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) bank for phenotypically well-characterized patients with NF1. 2. Develop isogenic NF1 wild-type (NF1+/+), NF1 heterozygous ...
Recent advances have shown that cells from human blood, skin and urine samples can be reprogrammed to become stem cells. These are called induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs) and share m...
Creation of a large repository of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC), bio-fluid samples (blood and spinal fluid (optional)), and cell lines for ALS gene identification. This will be com...
Background Genetic factors play a major role in intellectual disability (ID) but the underlying cause is not determined in many cases. This proposal is the continuation of the previous in...
This is a first-in-human trial proposed to test HLA-A*0201 restricted NY-ESO-1 redirected T cells with edited endogenous T cell receptor and PD-1.
Small kinetoplastid mitochondrial RNA that plays a major role in RNA EDITING. These molecules form perfect hybrids with edited mRNA sequences and possess nucleotide sequences at their 5'-ends that are complementary to the sequences of the mRNA's immediately downstream of the pre-edited regions.
The percent frequency with which a dominant or homozygous recessive gene or gene combination manifests itself in the phenotype of the carriers. (From Glossary of Genetics, 5th ed)
A strain of mice widely studied as a model for cystic fibrosis. These mice are generated from embryonic stem cells in which the CFTR (cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator) gene is inactivated by gene targeting. As a result, all mice have one copy of this altered gene in all their tissues. Mice homozygous for the disrupted gene exhibit many features common to young cystic fibrosis patients, including failure to thrive, meconium ileus, and alteration of mucous and serous glands.
Cell lines whose original growing procedure consisted being transferred (T) every 3 days and plated at 300,000 cells per plate (J Cell Biol 17:299-313, 1963). Lines have been developed using several different strains of mice. Tissues are usually fibroblasts derived from mouse embryos but other types and sources have been developed as well. The 3T3 lines are valuable in vitro host systems for oncogenic virus transformation studies, since 3T3 cells possess a high sensitivity to CONTACT INHIBITION.
Mice homozygous for the mutant autosomal recessive gene, quaking (qk), associated with disorder in myelin formation and manifested by axial tremors.
