GPAM (glycerol-3-phosphateacyltransferase1) is a mitochondrial enzyme that catalyze an essential step in glycerolphospholipids and triacylglycerol biosynthesis process. Loss-of-function mutation of GPAM has been shown to lead to hypomyelination of corticospinal tract in cerebral palsy patient. To model this rare disease with human brain organoid, we generated a GPAM knockout human embryonic stem cell line SYSUe-008-A by CRISPR/cas9. The GPAM knockout cell line maintains a normal karyotype and shows comparable level of pluripotent stem cell marker expression and differentiation potential as wild-type human embryonic stem cells.
