Construction of induced pluripotent stem cell line (ZZUi0017-A) from the fibroblast cells of a female patient with CACNA1A mutation by unintegrated reprogramming approach


Ataxia is a common clinical symptom of neurodegenerative diseases, such as spinocerebellar ataxia, Parkinson's disease. Spinocerebellar ataxia includes more than 40 types. In clinical work, we collected the clinical data and skin tissue of one patient with SCA6 who have definitive genetic test results. More than that, we reprogrammed the patient derived fibroblast cells to induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to construct a SCA6 pathological cell model. The cell line was proved having good pluripotency through detection of pluripotent marker and teratoma formation. This iPS cell line is a special cell model for revealing mechanism and identifying potential therapeutic targets. Copyright © 2020 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
