Generation of ultra-treatment-resistant schizophrenia patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cell line UJSi002-A


Schizophrenia is a chronic, serious and disabling mental disorder. Most patients can effectively control their condition through drug treatment, but there are still some patients who are difficult to gain benefits from drug treatment. Among them, the failure to respond to clozapine full-scale treatment is ultra-treatment-resistant schizophrenia. We generated induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from an ultra-treatment-resistant schizophrenia patient by electroporation of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) with episomal plasmids encoding OCT 4, SOX 2, NANOG, LIN 28, KLF 4 and MYC. The iPSCs demonstrated normal karyotype, expressed pluripotency markers and differentiated into the three germ layers in vivo. Copyright © 2022 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
