Generation of an iPSC line (AKOSi006-A) from fibroblasts of an NPC1 patient, carrying the homozygous mutation p.I1061T (c.3182 T > C) and a control iPSC line (AKOSi007-A) using a non-integrating Sendai virus system
Niemann-Pick disease type C1 (NPC1) is a rare inherited lipid storage disorder caused by mutations in the NPC1 gene. Mutations lead to impaired lipid trafficking and subsequently to accumulation of cholesterol and sphingolipids. NPC1-patients present variable multisystemic symptoms, including neurological deficits. Here, we describe the generation of human iPSC lines obtained from fibroblasts of a male individual, carrying the homozygous mutation p.I1061T, and an unrelated and healthy male individual. A non-integrating Sendai virus system, containing KLF4, OCT3/4, SOX2 and C-MYC, was used for reprogramming. These cell lines provide a valuable resource for studying the pathophysiology of multisystemic NPC1-disease. Copyright © 2020 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
