Generation of an iPSC line (HUSTi002-A) from fibroblasts of a patient with Sertoli cell-only syndrome carrying c.731_732delAT in PIWIL2 gene


Sertoli cell-only syndrome (SCOS) is a severe phenotype of male infertility; autosomal gene defects are thought to be the causes for this disease. The iPSC line generated from a SCOS patient carrying a mutation in PIWIL2 gene expresses pluripotent markers, has a normal karyotype and the mutation c.731_732delAT in PIWIL2 gene and is able to differentiate into three germ layers. This cell line will help to study the pathogenesis of SCOS, and the roles of PIWIL2 in human germ cells development and spermatogenesis. Copyright © 2020 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
