Abstract

Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 2 (SCA2) is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by progressive degeneration of the cerebellum, brain stem, and spinal cord. SCA2 is caused by spontaneous misfolding and aggregate formation from abnormal CAG trinucleotide repeat expansion in the coding region of the ATXN2 gene. Here we describe the generation of two distinct iPSC lines from patients with SCA2.
