Loss-of-function mutations in the bone morphogenetic protein receptor 2 (BMPR2) gene are common in heritable or idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), and can result in functional impairment of both endothelial and vascular smooth muscle cells. Here, we report 3 PAH patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) lines from 3 unrelated patients harbouring different mutations in the BMPR2 gene: a heterozygous missense mutation in exon 12, a heterozygous frame shift deletion in exon 3, and a heterozygous missense mutation in exon 11. These cell lines will serve as a valuable resource to model PAH in vitro.
