Derivation of human iPSC line NCCSi002-A from umbilical cord blood (UCB) CD34+cells of donor from Indian ethnicity


We discuss the reprogramming of CD34+ cells isolated from UCB of a healthy female child of Indian ethnicity. The CD34+cells were nucleofected using episomal vectors expressing Oct4, Sox2, L-Myc, Klf4, Lin28 and p53DD (negative mutation in p53). The colonies were stained for alkaline phosphatase and evaluated for pluripotency marker expression by PCR, immunofluorescence and flow-cytometry. The safety of cells was confirmed by absence of plasmid in subsequent passages by PCR. G-banded karyotype demonstrated a stable genome. The ability of tri-lineage differentiation was confirmed by specific marker expression by immunofluorescence invitro and teratoma formation invivo. Copyright © 2017 The Authors.
