Generation of human induced pluripotent stem cell line (WMUi001-A) from a patient with aortic dissection
A human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) line (WMUi001-A) was generated from the aortic tissue of a 47-year-old donor with aortic dissection and normal blood pressure. Integration-free episomal vector-mediated reprogramming was used for the generation of this iPSC line. The established iPSC line was found to express pluripotency markers, exhibit a differentiation potential in vitro, as well as display a normal karyotype. We further identified that this iPSC line contained a mutation in collagen type IV (COL4A2, R131M), which may serve as a useful tool for the disease modeling of aortic dissection.
