Generation and characterization of a human iPSC line HECi001-A from a healthy adult donor pancreata


Human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC) are considered promising sources of pancreatic islet organoids to treat diabetes. Due to that epigenetic memory predisposes iPSCs to enhanced differentiation into the parental cell type, we sought to generate iPSC lines from islet cells isolated from healthy adult pancreata. Islet cells were reprogrammed with CytoTune-iPS 2.0 Sendai Reprogramming Kit, where the generated iPSCs showed normal karyotype, expression of pluripotency associated markers and in vivoteratoma formation. This cell line will be a valuable resource for drug screening, and potential source for high-efficient generation of insulin-producing islets for treating diabetes. Copyright © 2021 The Authors.
