Generation of three induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines from a multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) patient and three iPSC lines from an unaffected relative of the patient

Summary

We generated three disease-specific iPSC lines from a Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) patient and three control iPSC lines from an unaffected blood relative of the patient using unutilized lymphoblastoid B cell lines (LCLs) as a cell resource. The expression of pluripotency markers, retaining of normal karyotype of chromosome, absence of episomal vectors used for generating the iPSCs and EBV used for generating LCLs, and the potential to differentiate into three germ layers, were confirmed for each iPSC line. These iPSC lines can be useful for construction of the disease models in vitro, and elucidation of the disease mechanisms. Copyright © 2020. Published by Elsevier B.V.
