Reprograming human primary cancer cells remains technically challenging, and leukemia-specific human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) lines have not yet been generated from tissues of patients with acute leukemia (Muñoz-López et al., 2016). Here, we developed an hiPSC line with a doxycycline-inducible expression system with the fusion gene ETV6-RUNX1 integrated into the genome. This is the most common genetic aberration found in childhood leukemia. This hiPSC line will be a useful model for research on childhood leukemia pathology and risk assessment.
