Generation of SCN1A Knock out induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line
The SCN1A gene encodes the voltage-gated Na+ channel alpha subunit Nav1.1 and is the most clinically relevant epilepsy gene. Variants in SCN1A result in a broad phenotypic spectrum of epilepsy syndromes, from mild genetic epilepsy with febrile seizures plus to severe Dravet syndrome (DS). Here, we generated a SCN1A-knockout human iPSC line via CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing. The resulting iPSCs had a normal karyotype, were free of genomically integrated epitomal plasmids, expressed pluripotency markers, and maintained trilineage differentiation potential.
