The familial form of Alzheimer's disease (FAD), which is caused by mutations in PRESENILIN 1 (PSEN1) and amyloid precursor protein (APP) genes, represents less than 5% of all AD cases and has an early-onset. We report the generation and characterization of an iPSC line derived from a FAD patient carrying the PSEN1-G206D mutation. The iPSC line maintained the original genotype, a normal karyotype, was free from Sendai viral vectors and reprogramming factors (OCT4, SOX2, KLF4 and c-MYC), presented a typical morphology, expressed endogenous pluripotency markers, and could be differentiated into ectodermal, mesodermal and endodermal cells, confirming its pluripotency.
