Generation of three iPSC lines from two patients with heterozygous FOXF1 mutations associated to Alveolar Capillary Dysplasia with Misalignment of the Pulmonary Veins

Summary

Diagnosing Alveolar Capillary Dysplasia with Misalignment of the Pulmonary Veins (ACD/MPV) based on a genetic alteration in the FOXF1 gene, is complicated by the poor understanding of the causal relation between FOXF1 variants and the ACD/MPV phenotype. Here, we report the generation of human iPSC lines from two ACD/MPV patients, each carrying a different heterozygous FOXF1 mutation, which enables disease modeling for further research on the effect of FOXF1 variants in vitro. The iPSC lines were generated from skin fibroblasts using the non-integrating Sendai virus. The lines expressed pluripotency genes, retained the heterozygous mutation and were capable of trilineage differentiation. Copyright © 2020 The Author(s). Published by Elsevier B.V.
