Generation of spinocerebellar ataxia type 3 patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cell line (CSUXHi005-A) from human urine epithelial cells


Urine epithelial cells were harvested from a 32-year old female patient with spinocerebellar ataxia type 3 (SCA3) and reprogrammed into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) by non-integration system. The SCA3 derived iPSCs line, CSUXHi005-A, maintained 76 CAG expansions in the ATXN3 gene, was characterized by the expression of pluripotency markers and normal karyotype. The newly generated iPSCs retain the ability to differentiate into three germ layers by teratoma test, which provide an ideal tool for disease modeling, drug screening, and cellular therapy.
