Establishment of a human induced pluripotent stem cell line, KMUGMCi001-A, from a patient bearing a heterozygous c.772 + 3_772 + 4dup mutation in the ACVRL1 gene leading Telangiectasia, hereditary hemorrhagic, type 2 (HHT2)


Telangiectasia, hereditary hemorrhagic, type 2 (HHT2) is a rare autosomal dominant disease caused by a mutated ACVRL1 gene (Letteboer et al., 2005). The peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from a patient carrying a heterozygous 2 bp duplication in intron 6 of the ACVRL1 gene, NG_009549.1(NM_000020.2):c.772 + 3_772 + 4dup, were reprogrammed using episomal vectors. The inserted mutation in ACVRL1 will causes the abnormal splicing, which will be associated with HHT2. The cell line will enable proper in vitro disease modelling of HHT2(Roman and Hinck, 2017).
