Generation of two spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) type I patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines and two SMA type II patient-derived iPSC lines
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a neuromuscular disease caused by deletion or mutation in SMN1 gene. SMA human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) represent a useful and valid model for the study of the disorder, as they provide in vitro the target cells. We generated iPSCs from a SMA type I patient and SMA type II patient by using non-integrating episomal plasmid vectors. The resulting iPSCs are episomal-free, express pluripotency markers, display a normal karyotype, retain the mutation (homozygous deletion of SMN1) and are able to differentiate into the three germ layers.
