Generation of an induced pluripotent stem cell line from a 3-month-old nemaline myopathy patient with a heterozygous dominant c.515C > A (p.Ala172Glu) variant in the ACTA1 gene


Variants in the ACTA1 gene are a common cause of nemaline myopathy (NM); a muscle disease that typically presents at birth or early childhood with hypotonia and muscle weakness. Here, we generated an induced pluripotent stem cell line (iPSC) from lymphoblastoid cells of a 3-month-old female patient with intermediate NM caused by a dominant ACTA1 variant (c.515C > A (p.Ala172Glu)). iPSCs showed typical morphology, expressed pluripotency markers, demonstrated trilineage differentiation potential, and had a normal karyotype. This line complements our previously published ACTA1 iPSC lines derived from patients with typical and severe NM. Copyright © 2022 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
