Generation of 20 human induced pluripotent stem cell lines from patients with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS)


Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a major cause of familial nephrotic syndrome. We generated 20 induced pluripotent stem cell lines from patients diagnosed with FSGS. The iPSC lines include 8 female and 12 male lines and cover a donor age range from 31 to 78. The lines were generated from peripheral blood mononuclear cells by integration-free reprogramming using Sendai virus vectors. Cell lines were fully characterized regarding their pluripotency and differentiation potential, and quality controlled for karyotypic integrity, identity and clearance of reprogramming vectors. The generated cell lines represent a valuable tool for disease modelling and drug development for FSGS. Copyright © 2021 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
