Modeling aspects of bipolar disorder in neurons and astrocytes from patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells

Bipolar Disorder (BD) is a genetically heterogeneous psychiatric disorder of unknown etiology that presents major challenges for the study of disease biology and drug development. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which can be differentiated into neurons and glia, provide a cellular model system suitable for studies of cases and controls as well as studies that assess the impact of therapeutic agents on cellular development and differentiation. As part of the Amish-Mennonite Bipolar Genetics study (AMBiGen), we are collecting clinical data, DNA, and fibroblasts from probands diagnosed with BD and their relatives, all ascertained within genetically-isolated Amish and Mennonite communities in the Americas. Fibroblasts have been reprogrammed to iPSCs with Sendai virus and differentiated into neural progenitor cells (NPCs), neurons, and astrocytes using standard protocols. Pilot studies are underway in cells from 4 probands and 4 sex-matched, unaffected siblings (2 clones each). Assessments include morphology, action potentials, gene expression profiles, and cellular response to therapeutic dosages of established treatments such as lithium and valproic acid (VPA). Preliminary results suggest that long-term treatment with VPA, but not lithium, greatly reduced proliferation of NPCs by the MTT assay, and promoted neuronal differentiation in both cases and controls. Long-term treatment with lithium greatly reduced neuronal calcium response to glutamate stimulation in both cases and controls, based on single-cell calcium imaging. Interestingly, differentiation of NPCs into astrocytes was substantially slower and doubling time was shorter in cells derived from cases. VPA treatment (10 d at 1 mM) significantly reduced astrocyte growth in cells derived from both cases and controls, but the impact of VPA was substantially greater in case-derived cells. Lithium treatment (10 d at 1 mM) increased astrocyte density in lines derived from healthy controls, but not in lines derived from cases. These preliminary results, if replicated, could point to cell-autonomous phenotypes detectable in astrocytes derived from people diagnosed with BD. If astrocyte development is impaired in BD, this could have important implications for research into etiology and therapeutics.

I would like to attend the annual conference of ISSCR 2017. By attending the conference, I would get chance to expand my knowledge and interact with leading scientists of the world working in the Stem Cell research field. The grant will help to attend this conference.

Thank you for help me .l hope to get the grant

Thank you

I would like to attend the annualconference of isscr 2017

I would like attand the conference

 I want to attend the annual conference of ISSCR 2017 and this grant will help to attend this conference.By attending the conference, I would get chance to expand my knowledge and interact with leading scientists of the world working in the Stem Cell research field.

I will be very grateful if you help me to attend to the ISSCR annual meeting. I am from Mexico, and due to the lack of economical support and limited resouces we have as students is quite difficult to travel. By attending to the meeting, my research group and I will get the opportunity to talk out the results we have obtained, and get a feedback with others that are working in the same field. This is very valuable for me as a master student because I will get the opportunity to present a poster with the results we have obtained, and also to get the chance to interact with leading scientist of the world in the Stem Cell research field. 

Thank you, 

Sincerely,
