Generation of a non-integrated induced pluripotent stem cell line (SMBCi009-A) from urine-derived cells of a Chinese Familial hypercholesterolemia patient


Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH; OMIM: # 143890) is a common inherited autosomal dominant disease, characterized by high-level low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) in plasma. Elevated LDL-C levels is closely related with atherosclerotic plaques and premature cardiovascular disease if not treated in time. Here we generated an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line using urine cells (UCs) derived from an 8-year-old male FH patient who carrying two coding and pathogenic mutations of low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) gene (exon12:c.C1747T and exon13: c. 1948 del G). This induced pluripotent stem cell line named SMBCi009-A can be used to understand more cellular details about FH. Copyright © 2021. Published by Elsevier B.V.
