Generation of two induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines from patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (IGIBi006-A and IGIBi008-A) carrying exonic deletions in the dystrophin gene


Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is an X-linked recessive disorder with defect in dystrophin gene that shows features of degeneration of muscle tissue at an early age. Here, we describe iPSC lines generated from LCL of two patients of Indian origin carrying 46-48 and 49-50 exons deletions in DMD. The resulting iPSC lines IGIBi006-A and IGIBi008-A showed all the characteristic features of pluripotency, differentiated into cells of three germ layers in vitro and have no major genetic alterations due to reprogramming process. These lines can serve as a useful cell model for studying disease pathogenesis and will aid in precision therapy. Copyright © 2022 CSIR-Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology.
