Generation of iPSC lines from hereditary spastic paraplegia 56 (SPG56) patients and family members carrying CYP2U1 mutations


Hereditary spastic paraplegia 56 (SPG56) is an extremely rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the CYP2U1 gene, involved in fatty acid metabolism. SPG56 causes progressive spasticity in upper and lower limbs, though due to the rarity of this subtype of spastic paraplegia, the molecular causes remain unclear and no treatment or cure exists. Here we describe the generation and validation of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines from two unrelated patients with SPG56 and two heterozygous family members. These lines can be used to investigate the mechanisms driving progressive spasticity and evaluate the potential for gene replacement therapies. Copyright © 2022 The Author(s).
