Generation of induced pluripotent stem cell lines from helper and cytotoxic T cells of healthy individuals


T lymphocytes are the most abundant mononuclear blood cells and can serve as a source for generating induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) for disease modeling or drug development. Here, we report the derivation of two iPSC lines from CD4+ helper T cells and CD8+ cytolytic T cells, respectively. The reprogramming was performed using Sendai virus encoding Klf-4, c-Myc, Oct-4 and Sox-2. Both iPSC lines displayed typical embryonic stem cell-like morphology and normal karyotype. Pluripotency was confirmed using immunocytochemistry methods and teratoma formation assay. Published by Elsevier B.V.
