Skin fibroblasts from a patient with neurodevelopmental and speech delay, anxiety disorder, macrocephaly, microorchidism, multiple anomalies of internal organs and ring chromosome 13 were reprogrammed into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to generate a clonal stem cell line IMGTi003-A (iTAF6-6). IMGTi003-A pluripotency was demonstrated by three germ layer differentiation capacity in vitro, and this cell line had a mosaic karyotype with 46,XY,r(13) as a predominant cell subpopulation. IMGTi003-A line is a good model for studying of the mitotic instability of the ring chromosome 13.
