We generated an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line from a Bernard-Soulier Syndrome (BSS) patient carrying the mutation p.Trp71Arg in the GPIX locus (BSS1-PBMC-iPS4F4). Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were reprogrammed using heat sensitive non-integrative Sendai viruses containing the reprogramming factors Oct3/4, SOX2, KLF4 and c-MYC. Successful silencing of the exogenous reprogramming factors was checked by RT-PCR. Characterization of BSS1-PBMC-iPS4F4 included mutation analysis of GPIX locus, Short Tandem Repeats (STR) profiling, alkaline phosphatase enzymatic activity, analysis of conventional pluripotency-associated factors at mRNA and protein level and in vivo differentiation studies. BSS1-PBMC-iPS4F4 will provide a powerful tool to study BSS.
