Generation of human induced pluripotent stem cell lines from a patient with ITM2B-related retinal dystrophy and a non mutated brother


Human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines were generated from fibroblasts of a patient affected with an autosomal dominant retinal dystrophy carrying the mutation c.782A>C, p.Glu261Ala in ITM2B and from an unaffected brother. Three different iPSC lines were generated and characterized from primary dermal fibroblasts of the affected subject and two from the unaffected brother. All iPSC lines expressed the pluripotency markers, were able to differentiate into the three germ layers and presented normal karyotypes. This cellular model will provide a powerful tool to study this retinal dystrophy and better understand the role of ITM2B. Copyright © 2019. Published by Elsevier B.V.
