Generation of the human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) line PSMi006-A from a patient affected by an autosomal recessive form of long QT syndrome type 1


We generated human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) from dermal fibroblasts of a 40 years old female patient homozygous for the mutation c.535 G > A p.G179S on the KCNQ1 gene, causing a severe form of autosomal recessive Long QT Syndrome type 1 (AR-LQT1). The hiPSCs, generated using classical approach of the four retroviruses enconding the reprogramming factors OCT4, SOX2, cMYC and KLF4, display pluripotent stem cell characteristics, and differentiate into cell lineages of all three germ layers: endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm.
