Generation of the induced pluripotent stem cell line CSSi006-A (3681) from a patient affected by advanced-stage Juvenile Onset Huntington's Disease


Juvenile Onset Huntington's Disease (JOHD) is a rare variant of HD withage of onset ≤20 years, accounting for 3-10% of all HD patients. The rarity occurrence of JOHD cases, who severely progress towards mental and physical disability with atypical clinical manifestations compared to classical HD, are responsible of general lack of knowledge about this variant. We obtained a fully reprogrammed iPS cell line from fibroblasts of a JOHD patient carrying 65 CAG repeats and age at onset at age 15. At the biopsy time, the patient showed an advanced stage after 10 years of disease. Copyright © 2018 The Author(s). Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
