Generation of three human induced pluripotent stem cell sublines (UCLAi005-A, UCLAi005-B and UCLAi005-C) for reproductive science research


We generated three human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) sublines from human dermal fibroblasts (HDF) (MZT05) generated from a skin biopsy donated from a previously fertile woman. The skin biopsy was broadly consented for generating hiPSC lines for biomedical research, including unique consent specifically for studying human fertility, infertility and germ cell differentiation. hiPSCs were reprogrammed using Sendai virus vectors and were subsequently positive for markers of self-renewal. Pluripotency was further verified using PluriTest analysis and in vitro differentiation was tested using Taqman Real-Time PCR assays. These sublines serve as controls for hiPSC research projects aimed at understanding the cell and molecular regulation of female fertility. Copyright © 2021 The Author(s). Published by Elsevier B.V.
