Generation of novel induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line from a 16-year-old sialidosis patient with NEU-1 gene mutation.

Literature context:


Sialidosis is a rare autosomal recessive disorder that affects the intralysosomal catabolism of sialylated glycoconjugates and is involved in cellular immune response. Mutations in NEU1, which encodes the sialidase enzyme, result in sialidosis. Sialidosis is characterized by the progressive lysosomal storage of sialylated glycopeptides and oligosaccharides. In this study, we used Sendai virus reprogramming to generate an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line carrying the A544G mutation combined with the 667-679 deletion of the NEU1 gene from a sialidosis patient. The patient-specific iPSCs expressed pluripotent markers, possessed a normal karyotype, and displayed the capability to differentiate into three germ layers.

A Human IPS Model Implicates Embryonic B-Myeloid Fate Restriction as Developmental Susceptibility to B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia-Associated ETV6-RUNX1.

Literature context:


ETV6-RUNX1 is associated with childhood acute B-lymphoblastic leukemia (cALL) functioning as a first-hit mutation that initiates a clinically silent pre-leukemia in utero. Because lineage commitment hierarchies differ between embryo and adult, and the impact of oncogenes is cell-context dependent, we hypothesized that the childhood affiliation of ETV6-RUNX1 cALL reflects its origins in a progenitor unique to embryonic life. We characterize the first emerging B cells in first-trimester human embryos, identifying a developmentally restricted CD19-IL-7R+ progenitor compartment, which transitions from a myeloid to lymphoid program during ontogeny. This developmental series is recapitulated in differentiating human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs), thereby providing a model for the initiation of cALL. Genome-engineered hPSCs expressing ETV6-RUNX1 from the endogenous ETV6 locus show expansion of the CD19-IL-7R+ compartment, show a partial block in B lineage commitment, and produce proB cells with aberrant myeloid gene expression signatures and potential: features (collectively) consistent with a pre-leukemic state.

Induced pluripotent stem cells derived from an autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease patient carrying a PKD1 Q533X mutation.

Literature context:


Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is the most prevalent monogenic kidney disorder leading to kidney failure. We generated induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from a 37-year-old man carrying a PKD1 Q533X mutation who suffered from kidney failure and a myocardial infarction. The iPSCs were reprogrammed from the patient's peripheral blood mononuclear cells using the Sendai virus system, and were confirmed to possess the specific PKD1 Q533X mutation and normal karyotype. Pluripotency was confirmed using in vitro and in vivo assays. This iPSC line will be useful for studying the mechanisms driving the complicated pathophysiology of ADPKD.

Generation of an induced pluripotent stem cell line, IBMS-iPSC-014-05, from a female autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease patient carrying a common mutation of R803X in PKD2.

Literature context:


Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is one of the most commonly inherited forms of polycystic kidney disease, and is characterized by the growth of numerous cysts in both kidneys. Here we generated an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line from the peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of a 63-year-old female ADPKD patient carrying an R803X mutation in the PKD2 gene using the Sendai-virus delivery system. Downstream characterization of these iPSCs showed that they possessed normal karyotyping, were free of genomic integration, retained the disease-causing PKD2 mutation, expressed pluripotency markers and could differentiate into three germ layers.

Stage-Specific Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Map the Progression of Myeloid Transformation to Transplantable Leukemia.

Literature context:


Myeloid malignancy is increasingly viewed as a disease spectrum, comprising hematopoietic disorders that extend across a phenotypic continuum ranging from clonal hematopoiesis to myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). In this study, we derived a collection of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines capturing a range of disease stages encompassing preleukemia, low-risk MDS, high-risk MDS, and secondary AML. Upon their differentiation, we found hematopoietic phenotypes of graded severity and/or stage specificity that together delineate a phenotypic roadmap of disease progression culminating in serially transplantable leukemia. We also show that disease stage transitions, both reversal and progression, can be modeled in this system using genetic correction or introduction of mutations via CRISPR/Cas9 and that this iPSC-based approach can be used to uncover disease-stage-specific responses to drugs. Our study therefore provides insight into the cellular events demarcating the initiation and progression of myeloid transformation and a new platform for testing genetic and pharmacological interventions.
