Dermal fibroblasts from a patient carrying a heterozygous c.88G > C mutation in the SNCA gene that encodes alpha-synuclein were reprogrammed to pluripotency by retroviruses. This pathogenic mutation generates the p.A30P form of the alpha-synuclein protein leading to autosomal dominantly inherited Parkinson's disease (PD). Two clonal iPS cell lines were generated (A30P-3 and A30P-4) and characterised by validating the silencing of viral transgenes, the expression of endogenous pluripotency genes, directed differentiation into three germ layers in-vitro and a stable molecular genotype. These iPSC lines will serve as a valuable resource in determining the role of the p.A30P SNCA mutation in PD pathogenesis.
