The epsilon4 (ε4) allele of the APOE gene, which encodes the apolipoprotein E4 (ApoE4), is the strongest genetic risk factor known for late-onset Alzheimer´s disease (LOAD). Here, we present the characterization of an iPSC line generated from dermal fibroblasts of a female AD patient using Sendai viral vectors encoding the transcription factors OCT4, SOX2, KLF4 and c-MYC. The iPSCs maintained the original genotype, a normal karyotype, were free from Sendai viral vectors and reprogramming factors, presented a normal morphology, expressed endogenous pluripotency markers, and could be differentiated into ectodermal, mesodermal and endodermal cells, confirming its pluripotency.
