Orkin, children's hospital and the dana farber cancer institute, harvard medical school and howard hughes medical institute, boston, ma, and approved september 14, 2012 (received for review july 5, 2012) abstract patients with down syndrome (trisomy 21, t21) have hematologic abnormalities throughout life. Newborns frequently exhibit abnormal blood counts and a clonal preleukemia. Human t21 fetal livers contain expanded erythro-megakaryocytic precursors with enhanced proliferative capacity. The impact of t21 on the earliest stages of embryonic hematopoiesis is unknown and nearly impossible to examine in human subjects. viagra effects on girls We modeled t21 yolk sac hematopoiesis using human induced pluripotent stem cells (ipscs). Blood progenitor populations generated from t21 ipscs were present at normal frequency and proliferated normally. However, their developmental potential was altered with enhanced erythropoiesis and reduced myelopoiesis, but normal megakaryocyte production. These abnormalities overlap with those of t21 fetal livers, but also reflect important differences. viagra effects on girls Our studies show that t21 confers distinct developmental stage- and species-specific hematopoietic defects. More generally, we illustrate how ipscs can provide insight into early stages of normal and pathological human development.
