Generation of DMBi002-A human induced pluripotent stem cell line from patient with Spinal muscular atrophy type 3


Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a genetic neuromuscular disease caused by mutations inSMN1 gene encoding survival motor neuron (SMN) protein. Lack of this protein leads to progressive loss of motor neurons and therefore to gradual loss of signal transmission between motor neurons and skeletal muscle cells. As a consequence, patients develop muscle atrophy and lose the ability to move independently, what is also related to problems with breathing and swallowing. Here, we describe the generation of human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC) from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) of adult SMA type 3 patient with a use of Sendai virus vectors.
