X-linked Adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD) is a neuro-metabolic disorder that is caused by malfunction of a peroxisomal transporter protein, adenosine ATP-binding cassette transporter superfamily D member 1 (ABCD1). We established an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line from a 42-year-old male X-ALD patient-derived dermal fibroblasts with Sendai virus-mediated reprogramming. Established iPSCs stably expanded, expressed genes of pluripotency, and maintained normal karyotype. In vitro differentiation assay revealed the characteristics of all three germ layers.
