Generation of induced pluripotent stem cell line (ZZUi0014-A) from a patient with spinocerebellar ataxia type 3


Spinocerebellar ataxia type 3 (SCA3) is an autosomal dominant disorder that is caused by the abnormal amplification of cytosine-adenine-guanine (CAG) trinucleotide repeats in the ATXN3 gene. The main feature of SCA3 is progressive ataxia. Currently, no effective treatment exists for this condition. For this study, we obtained dermal fibroblasts from a patient. The fibroblasts were successfully transformed into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) by employing episomal plasmids expressing OCT3/4, SOX2, KLF4, LIN28, and L-MYC. Our approach offers a resource for further research into SCA3 mechanism in an attempt to facilitate the development and screening of pharmaceutical and gene therapy. Copyright © 2019 The Authors.
