Lymphoblast-derived integration-free iPS cell line from a 65-year-old Alzheimer's disease patient expressing the TREM2 p.R47H variant.

Human lymphoblast cells from a male patient diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease (AD) expressing the TREM2 p.R47H variant were used to generate integration-free induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells employing episomal plasmids expressing OCT4, SOX2, NANOG, LIN28, c-MYC and L-MYC. The iPS cells retained the TREM2 mutation, and were defined as pluripotent based… CONTINUE READING
