In this study, we focused on the derivation of human embryonic stem cell (hESC) from preimplantation genetic screening (PGS)-analyzed and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD)-analyzed embryos. Out of 62 fresh PGD/PGS-analyzed embryos, 22 embryos reached the blastocyst stage. From 12 outgrowth blastocysts, we derived four hESC lines onto a feeder layer. Surprisingly, karyotype analysis showed that hESC lines derived from aneuploid embryos had diploid female karyotype. One hESC line was found to carry a balanced Robertsonian translocation. All the cell lines showed hESC markers and had the pluripotent ability to differentiate into derivatives of the three embryonic germ layers. The established lines had clonal propagation with 22-31% efficiency in the presence of ROCK inhibitor. These results further indicate that hESC lines can be derived from PGD/PGS-analyzed embryos that are destined to be discarded and can serve as an alternative source for normal euploid lines.
