A protocol for the generation of patient-specific iPSC lines from peripheral blood mononuclear cells


The current procedure thoroughly explains how to reprogram induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from the patient's peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), a less invasive source; e.g., somatic cells. We describe how to isolate PBMCs and reprogram them into iPSCs by electroporation. Furthermore, we provide an alternative approach to generating iPSC using Geltrex or Matrigel matrix to replace MEF-feeder. The challenge of this process is the relatively lower cell survival rates of PBMCs due to the damage of electroporation.
