Establishment of iPSC line from a Chinese infant (XACHi012-A) with Jervell and Lange-Nielsen syndrome carrying combined KCNQ1 frameshift c.431delC(p.I145Sfs*92) and nonsense c.1175G > A (p.W392X) variants and two iPSC lines from the parents (XACHi013-A, XACHi014-A)


Induced pluripotent stem cell lines (iPSCs) were generated from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) isolated from the peripheral blood of a two month-old boy and the parents. Jervell and Lange-Nielsen syndrome (JLNS) was diagnosed in the boy carrying combined KCNQ1 frameshift c.431delC (p.I145Sfs*92) and nonsense c.1175G > A(p.W392X) variants inherited from his mother and father respectively. PBMCs were reprogrammed using non-integrative Sendai viral vectors containing reprogramming factors OCT4, SOX2, KLF4 and C-MYC. IPSCs were shown to express pluripotent markers, have trilineage differentiation potential, carrying identified KCNQ1 variants with corresponding PBMC, and have a normal karyotype. Thus we established three iPSC lines as useful tools for studying the pathophysiological mechanism of JLNS and drug testing. Copyright © 2021 The Author(s). Published by Elsevier B.V.
