An induced pluripotent stem cell line (CIMRi001-A) from a Vici syndrome donor with a homozygous recessive c.1007A>G (p.Q336R) mutation in the EPG5 gene
Vici syndrome is a rare, congenital disorder that affects multiple systems and is caused by mutations in the EPG5 gene that encodes for ectopic P-granules autophagy protein 5 (EPG5). The induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line described here was generated from a dermal fibroblast cell line from an 8-year-old male donor with a homozygous recessive c.1007A>G (p.Q336R) mutation in the EPG5 gene. This iPSC model of Vici syndrome provides a unique and valuable resource for investigators to study the pathology of EPG5 mutations and the aetiology of the disease as well as develop therapeutic treatments for those with Vici syndrome.
