Generation of a Friedreich's Ataxia patient-derived iPSC line USFi001-A
Friedreich's Ataxia (FA) is an autosomal recessive disorder with an incidence of 1 in 50,000 in Caucasians. Most cases are caused by a biallelic GAA expansion in the first intron of the Frataxin (FXN) gene. FA is a neurodegenerative disease, but the leading cause of death is hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) that develops in 60% of the patients. We generated an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line from an FA patient with a homozygous GAA expansion in intron 1 of the FXN gene. The IPSCs display pluripotent cell morphology, expression of pluripotency markers, normal karyotype, and the capability to differentiate into all three germ layers. Copyright © 2021 The Authors.
