Phenotype and Disease related information (Donor)

Diseases A disease was diagnosed.
Spinocerebellar ataxia type 1 (SCA-1) belongs to the class of polyglutamine neurodegenerative diseases. This is an autosomal dominant disease caused by the expansion of CAG repeats in the ATXN1 gene encoding the polyglutamine tract in ataxin-1 protein (Orr et al., 1993). The exact functions of both normal and mutant ATXN1 are largely unknown. SCA-1 is caused by Purkinje cell death and degradation of the olive-cerebellar tracts, which leads to impaired coordination of movements, and cognitive disorders. Usually the onset of the disease occurs in 30-40 years old. The severity of the disease depends on the length of the CAG tract (Durr, 2010).
The donor is a carrier of a disease-associated mutation and affected.

Selection criteria for clones At passage 3 fibroblasts were transduced with lentiviral vectors LeGO-hOCT4, LeGO-hSOX2, LeGO-hc-Myc, LeGO-hKLF4 as described in (Chestkov et al., 2014). During 4 days after transduction valproic acid (Stemgent) was added in the culture medium to the concentration 1 mM. At day 5 cells were replated 1: 6, and cultivated on mitomycin C (Sigma) treated mouse embryonic fibroblasts. The next day after replating culture medium was changed to DMEM/F12 (PanEco), 20% KO Serum replacement (Invitrogen, USA), 0.1mM β-mercaptoethanol (Sigma), 1% NEAA (Hyclone), bFGF 4 ng/ml (PeproTech), 50 units/mL penicillin, and 50 mkg/mL streptomycin (PanEco). Cells were cultured for 12-15 days. Individual colonies were mechanically picked and cultured in TeSRE8 (StemCell Technologies) on Matrigel (Corning).
