Generation and characterization of a human iPSC line SANi006-A from a Gray Platelet Syndrome patient


Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) were generated from erythroblasts (EBLs) obtained from a patient diagnosed with Gray Platelet Syndrome (GPS), caused by compound heterozygous NBEAL2 mutations (c.6568delT and c.7937T>C). GPS is an autosomal recessive bleeding disorder characterized by a lack of α-granules in platelets and progressive myelofibrosis. EBLs were reprogrammed with CytoTune-iPS 2.0 Sendai Reprogramming Kit, where the generated iPSCs showed normal karyotype, expression of pluripotency associated markers and in vitro spontaneous differentiation towards the three germ layers. The generated iPSCs can be used to study GPS pathophysiology and the basic functions of NBEAL2 protein in different cell types. Copyright © 2021. Published by Elsevier B.V.
