Verification of an iPSC line (LZUi002-A) from a patient with a novel mutation in the TBL1X gene


More than 120 genes have been reported to be associated with deafness, and deletion of the TBL1X gene may cause deafness in humans. In this study, we generated an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line from dermal fibroblasts of a 34-year-old deaf person with a novel variant c.342_343insGCGGCG in the TBL1X gene. The induced patient-specific iPSC line with a normal karyotype and expressed pluripotent markers, it also shows differentiation totipotency and tridermogenesis in vivo. It may be a good model for studying hearing loss in vitro and it will benefit to the development of new therapies for deafness. Copyright © 2022 Lanzhou University Second Hospital.
