Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) were generated from peripheral blood-derived erythroid progenitor cells obtained from a presymptomatic female carrying the heterozygous R418X progranulin (GRN) nonsense mutation, known to cause autosomal dominant frontotemporal lobar degeneration. Erythroid progenitor cells were reprogrammed into iPSCs using integration free episomal plasmids which enables exogenous expression of the Yamanaka factors. The pluripotent potential of the iPSCs was validated through expression of pluripotency factors and their capacity to differentiate into the three primary germ layers. The cells were confirmed to carry the described mutation and shown to have a normal karyotype.
