Generation of two induced pluripotent stem cell lines from a patient with dominant PRPF31 mutation and a related non-penetrant carrier

Stem Cell Res. 2019 Jan;34:101357. doi: 10.1016/j.scr.2018.11.018. Epub 2018 Dec 10.


We report the generation of the human iPSC line LEIi008-A from a patient with retinitis pigmentosa-11 caused by a dominant nonsense mutation in the PRPF31 gene (NM_015629.3:c.1205C > A p.(Ser402Ter)). A second line, LEIi009-A, was generated from a related non-penetrant carrier of the same mutation with no retinal disease. Reprogramming of patient dermal fibroblasts using episomal plasmids containing OCT4, SOX2, KLF4, L-MYC, LIN28, shRNA for p53 and mir302/367 microRNA generated cell lines displaying pluripotent stem cell marker expression, a normal karyotype and the capability to differentiate into the three germ layer lineages.
