We have generated MLi003-A, a new induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line derived from hair follicle keratinocytes of a healthy male characterized with a maximum number of filaggrin tandem repeats, making this iPSC line the best control for studies on skin barrier function. The characterization of the MLi003-A cell line consisted of molecular karyotyping, high-throughput array-based sequencing composed of Fluidigm microfluidics technology and next-generation sequencing of the filaggrin alleles, and pluripotency and differentiation potentials testing by immunofluorescence of associated markers both in vitro and in vivo. The MLi-003A line has been also tested for ability to differentiate into keratinocytes.
