Generation of human induced pluripotent stem cell (SKLRMi001-A) from a patient with partial androgen insensitivity syndrome (PAIS)


Androgen receptor (AR) is essential for maintaining normal spermatogenesis and male fertility, and its mutation can cause complete or partial androgen insensitivity syndrome (CAIS or PAIS) in patients. We established an induced pluripotent stem cell line (SKLRMi001-A) from a PAIS patient with AR mutation (c.2710G > A; p. V904M). The iPSC line expressed pluripotency markers, retained normal karyotype, carried the mutation, showed capability of differentiating into three germ layers and was absence of mycoplasma infection. The iPSC line will help to further elucidate the pathogenic mechanisms of AR mutation, and benefit treatment for PAIS in the future. Copyright © 2020 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
