Generation of two induced pluripotent stem cell lines from dilated cardiomyopathy patients carrying heterozygous FLNC mutations


Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a heterogeneous cardiac disorder characterized by left ventricular dilatation and dysfunction. Mutations in dozens of cardiac genes have been connected to the development of DCM including the filamin C gene (FLNC). We generated two induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSCs) lines from DCM patients carrying single missense heterozygote FLNC mutations (c.6689G > A and c.3745G > A). Both lines expressed high levels of pluripotency markers, differentiated into derivatives of the three germ layers and possessed normal karyotypes. The derived iPSC lines can serve as powerful tools to model DCM in vitro and as a platform for therapeutic development. Copyright © 2022 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
