Generation of twelve induced pluripotent stem cell lines from two healthy controls and two patients with sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis


The majority of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis are sporadic (sALS) with no familial history or known genetic association, therefore a large cohort of disease models are required to identify common mechanisms or to test therapeutic interventions. Here we generated twelve induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines from human dermal fibroblasts of two healthy individuals and two sALS patients lacking common ALS mutations, using non-integrational Sendai virus expressing reprogramming factors OCT3/4, KLF4, SOX2 and c-MYC. The iPSC lines highly expressed pluripotency markers could be spontaneously differentiated into three embryonic germ layers, with no gross chromosomal aberrations or specific copy number variations.
