Generation of induced pluripotent stem cell Line KAIMRCi001-A by reprogramming erythroid progenitors from peripheral blood of a healthy Saudi donor


In this study we isolated and enriched erythroid progenitor cells (EPCs) from a 10 ml peripheral blood sample from a 37-year old healthy Saudi donor. After expansion, these EPCs were reprogrammed using episomal plasmids to generate an induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell line, KAIMRCi001-A. The pluripotency of this line was confirmed by measuring the expression of typical pluripotency markers and assessing differentiation potential in vitro. Copyright © 2021 The Author(s).
