Generation of an integration-free human induced pluripotent stem cell line MUSIi010-A from occipital scalp fibroblasts of a male patient with androgenetic alopecia


An induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line, MUSIi010-A, was established by Sendai virus (SeV) transduction of scalp fibroblasts from a 59-year-old male with androgenetic alopecia (AGA). Pluripotency of the iPSC line was verified by immunofluorescence staining of pluripotent markers and by in vitro trilineage differentiation. The MUSIi010-A line was shown to retain normal karyotype and free of SeV vectors at passage 17. This iPSC line can be used for studying pathological mechanisms of AGA. Copyright © 2019 The Authors.
