Generation of an induced pluripotent stem cell line (MHHi018-A) from a patient with Cystic Fibrosis carrying p.Asn1303Lys (N1303K) mutation


Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease caused by mutations in the Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR) gene which encodes for a chloride ion channel regulating the balance of salt and water across secretory epithelia. Here we generated an iPSC line from a CF patient homozygous for the p.Asn1303Lys mutation, a Class II folding defect mutation. This iPSC line provides a useful resource for disease modeling and to investigate the pharmacological response to CFTR modulators in iPSC derived epithelia. Copyright © 2020 The Author(s).
