Generation and characterization of human iPSC lines SANi001-A and SANi002-A from mobilized peripheral blood derived megakaryoblasts


Mobilized peripheral blood (MPB) CD34+ cells were differentiated to CD34+/CD41+ megakaryoblasts. Cells were sorted to obtain a pure megakaryoblast population which was reprogrammed with a hOKSM self-silencing polycistronic lentiviral vector. Resulting iPSC showed normal karyotype and expression of pluripotency associated markers and in vitro spontaneous differentiation towards the 3 germ layers confirmed pluripotency of iPSC lines. Besides normal iPSC applications, these lines can be used as a control line for other megakaryoid origin iPSC and could be applied for epigenetic based research. Copyright © 2017 The Authors.
