Generation of a human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line (IBMS-iPSC-070-02) from a patient with neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA) having compound heterozygous mutations in PANK2 gene


Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA) is a genetically and phenotypically heterogeneous group of inherited neurodegenerative disorder characterized by basal ganglia iron deposition. Mutations in Pantothenate Kinase 2 (PANK2) are major genetic causes for patients with NBIA. The location of PANK2 in the mitochondria suggests mutant PANK2 causing mitochondrial dysfunction in the pathogenesis of NBIA. Here, we used the Sendai virus delivery system to generate induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from peripheral blood mononuclear cells of a female patient having compound heterozygous mutations in PANK2. This cellular model could provide a platform for pathophysiological studies of NBIA in the future. Copyright © 2021 The Author(s). Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
