Establishment of an induced pluripotent stem cell line from a patient with primary ciliary dyskinesia carrying biallelic mutations in CCNO


Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is an autosomal recessive hereditary disorder affecting motile cilia structure and function, which leads to respiratory diseases and infertility. Here, an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line of PCD was generated from peripheral blood mononuclear cells of a female patient carrying biallelic mutations in Cyclin O (CCNO) gene. Reprogramming was performed with the non-integrated episomal vectors. The obtained transgene-free iPSCs had normal karyotypes, expressed pluripotency genes, and differentiated into three germ layers. This iPSC line could be a useful guide for studying the pathogenic mechanism, establishing a disease model of PCD, and screening potential therapeutic targets. Copyright © 2021 The Author(s).
