|Human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines were generated from patients with spontaneous late-onset Alzheimer's disease (AD) and three healthy control individuals. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells were reprogrammed with Yamanaka factors (OSKM) using a commercially available Epi5 Reprogramming Kit. The pluripotency of iPSCs was confirmed by the expression of pluripotency factors and by their ability to differentiate to all three germ layers in vitro. Newly derived cell lines can be used to model Alzheimer's disease in vitro.
