Generation of an induced pluripotent stem cell line (CSC-32) from a patient with Parkinson's disease carrying a heterozygous variation p.A53T in the SNCA gene

Publication date: Available online 11 January 2020Source: Stem Cell ResearchAuthor(s): Carla Azevedo, Margarita Chumarina, Evgenija Serafimova, Stefano Goldwurm, Anna Collin, Laurent Roybon, Ekaterina Savchenko, Yuriy PomeshchikAbstractHere, we describe the generation of an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line, from a male patient diagnosed with Parkinson's disease (PD). The patient carries a heterozygous variation p.A53T in the SNCA gene. Skin fibroblasts were reprogrammed using the non-integrating Sendai virus technology to deliver OCT3/4, SOX2, c-MYC and KLF4 factors. The generated iPSC line (CSC-32) preserved the mutation, displayed expression of common pluripotency markers, differentiated into derivatives of the three germ layers, and exhibited a normal karyotype. The clone CSC-32B is presented thereafter; it can be used to study the mechanisms underlying PD pathogenesis.

Contributor : Yogita SharmaSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Homo sapiensSince the pioneering studies using fetal cell transplants in Parkinson ’s disease (PD), brain repair by cell replacement has remained a long-standing and realistic goal for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders including PD. Authentic and functional dopamine (DA) neurons can now be generated from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs), and these cell preparation s are both safe and functional when transplanted to animal models of PD1. However, although resulting grafts from fetal brain tissue and hPS...

This study, for the first time, shows that transplantation of non-autologous mitochondria from healthy skeletal muscle cells into normal cardiomyocytes leads to short-term improvement of bioenergetics indicating "supercharged" state. However, over time these improved effects disappear, which suggests transplantation of mitochondria may have a potential application in settings where there is an acute stress. Outlining Some of the Science Behind Partial Reprogramming at Tur...

Authors: Tatullo M, Marrelli B, Zullo MJ, Codispoti B, Paduano F, Benincasa C, Fortunato F, Scacco S, Zavan B, Cocco T Abstract The scientific community continuously strives to get new disease models, to discover early markers or novel therapeutic approaches, improving the diagnosis and prognosis of several human pathologies. Parkinson's Disease (PD) is characterized by a long asymptomatic phase, characterized by a selective loss of dopaminergic neurons. Recently, the human Periapical Cyst-Mesenchymal Stem Cells (hPCy-MSCs) have been differentiated in functional dopaminergic neurons: such oral-derived MSCs and the ...

Nature Reviews Neurology, Published online: 24 March 2020; doi:10.1038/s41582-020-0343-5An understanding of the biochemical processes underlying Parkinson disease (PD) will be essential for the development of disease-modifying therapies. In a recent study, a novel biochemical phenotype of the disease was identified from analysis of inducible pluripotent stem cell-derived dopaminergic neurons from individuals with young-onset PD.

We report a new class of natural-product-inspired covalent inhibitors of telomerase that target the catalytic active site. Age-Related Epigenetic Changes that Suppress Mitochondrial Function Today's open access research reports on two specific epigenetic changes observed in old individuals that act to reduce mitochondrial function. This joins an existing list of genes for which expression changes are known to impact mitochondrial function with age. A herd of hundreds of mitochondria are found ...

Abstract Stem cells are the undifferentiated cells in the body that possess the ability to differentiate and give rise to any type of cell in the body. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in therapy involving the stem cells as different treatment methods got developed. Depending on the source, there are two major kinds of stem cells, embryonic and adult stem cells. The former type is found in the embryo at the different developmental stages before the implantation and excels the latter owing to pluripotency. On the premise of the attributes of stem cells, they are touted as the "panacea for all...
