Reprogramming of human peripheral blood mononuclear cells from a patient suffering from recurrent hydatidiform mole to an iPSC line FAHZUi001-A carrying a homozygous p.Gln421Ter mutation in NLRP7 gene


Recurrent hydatidiform mole (RHM) is characterized by the occurrence of at least twice hydatidiform mole. Unlike sporadic complete hydatidiform moles (CHMs), which are androgenetic with 2 paternal chromosomes, CHMs associated with familial recurrence are genetically biparental with a maternal and a paternal chromosome. NLRP7 mutations have been reported in 55% of RHM cases. Here, we generated induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from a patent with NLRP7 gene mutation c.1261C > T by reprogramming peripheral blood mononuclear cells by non-integrated method. The resulting iPSCs carrying NLRP7 mutation, had normal karyotype, expressed pluripotency markers, and could differentiate into three germ layersin vivo. Copyright © 2021 The Author(s).
