Generation and characterization of human-derived iPSC lines from one pair of dizygotic twins discordant for schizophrenia
Schizophrenia (SCZ) is a debilitating neurodevelopmental disorder with a high heritability. In this study, peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were donated by a pair of dizygotic twins. The female was clinically diagnosed as SCZ by Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders IV (DSM-IV) criteria, and her unaffected male sibling was healthy control. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) were established using Episomal vectors carrying reprograming factors OCT4, SOX2, NANOG, LIN28, c-MYC, KLF4, and SV40LT. These lines with normal karyotype highly expressed pluripotency markers and are capable to differentiate into derivatives of three germ layers. Both lines are negative of mycoplasma.
