Summary of "A collection of three integration-free iPSCs derived from old male and female healthy subjects."

Here, we present the characterization of three iPSC lines derived from dermal fibroblasts of old healthy subjects. Fibroblasts were reprogrammed using Sendai viral vectors encoding OCT4, SOX2, KLF4 and c-MYC. The iPSCs expressed endogenous pluripotency markers, could generate the three germ layers (ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm), maintained a stable karyotype, and were free from Sendai vectors and reprogramming factors. These integration-free iPSCs can serve for establishing control cell cultures in studies searching for phenotypes and mechanisms that could potentially be dysregulated in degenerative diseases.

A collection of integration-free iPSCs derived from Parkinson's disease patients carrying mutations in the GBA1 gene.

Mutations in the GBA1 gene, which encodes the lysosomal enzyme Glucocerebrosidase1 are major risk factors for Parkinson's disease (PD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). We have generated induced pl...

Generation of a human induced pluripotent stem cell line (HMGUi002-A) from a healthy male individual.

Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) can be used to generate different somatic cell types in vitro, including insulin-producing pancreatic β-cells. Here, we have generated iPSCs from a healthy male...

Generation of integration free human iPSC line SORMi002-A from neonatal foreskin fibroblasts.

Circumcision is a common surgical procedure usually performed on neonates worldwide. Skin removed after circumcision is abundant and often discarded. Neonatal foreskin fibroblasts (NFFs) can be easily...

Effect of iPSCs-derived keratinocytes on healing of full-thickness skin wounds in mice.

Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) provide new approaches for the management of severe skin wound healing due to their infinite proliferative capacity, pluripotency into multiple lineages, and imp...

A collection of four integration-free iPSC lines derived from diagnosed sporadic Alzheimer's disease patients with different APOE alleles.

Genetic polymorphism of apolipoprotein E (APOE) confers differential susceptibility to late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD). The ε3 allele of APOE, the most common isoform, does not represent a risk...

Developing Protocols for Modelling of Genetic Diseases Using Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

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...
