Establishment of TUSMi007-A, an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line from an 83-year old Chinese Han patient with Alzheimer's disease (AD)
An 83-year old Alzheimer's disease (AD) male patient donated his Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC). The non-integrating episomal vector system used to reprogram PBMCs with the human OKSM transcription factors. The pluripotency of transgene-free iPSCs was confirmed by immunocytochemistry for pluripotency markers and by the ability of the iPSCs to differentiate spontaneously into 3 germ layers in vitro. In addition, the iPSC line displayed a normal karyotype. Our model might offer a good platform to further study the pathological mechanisms, to identify early biomarkers, and also for drug testing studies in AD. Copyright © 2018 The Authors.
