Generation of a human iPSC line (UUIGPi015-A) from a patient with Dravet syndrome and a 2.9 Mb deletion spanning SCN1A on chromosome 2


Dravet syndrome is an early onset devastating epilepsy syndrome usually caused by heterozygous mutations in SCN1A. We generated a human iPSC line (UUIGPi015-A) from dermal fibroblasts of a patient with Dravet syndrome carrying a deletion on chromosome 2 encompassing SCN1A and 9 flanking genes. Characterization of the iPSC line confirmed expression of pluripotency markers, tri-lineage differentiation capacity and absence of exogenous reprogramming factors. The iPSC line retained the deletion and was genomically stable. The iPSC line UUIGPi015-A provides a useful resource for studies on the pathophysiology of Dravet syndrome and seizures caused by haploinsufficiency of SCN1A and flanking gene products.
