The human iPSC line LEIi006-A was generated from dermal fibroblasts from a patient with retinitis pigmentosa using episomal plasmids containing OCT4, SOX2, KLF4, L-MYC, LIN28, mir302/367 microRNA and shRNA for p53. The iPSC cells carry compound heterozygous mutations (c.1892A > G and c.2548G > A) in the CRB1 gene. LEIi006-A expressed pluripotent stem cell markers, had a normal karyotype and could be differentiated into endoderm, mesoderm and ectodermal lineages, as well as retinal organoids.
