Generation and characterization of CSSi016-A (9938) human pluripotent stem cell line carrying two biallelic variants in MTMR5/SBF1 gene resulting in a case of severe CMT4B3
Charcot-Marie-Tooth type 4B3 (CMT4B3) is a rare subtype of hereditary neuropathy associated with variants in the MTMR5/SBF1 gene. Herein, we report the generation and characterization of a hiPSC line from a 12-year-old Italian girl with early onset severe polyneuropathy with motor and axonal involvement, harboring biallelic variants in the MTMR5/SBF1 gene. Fibroblasts were reprogrammed using non-integrating episomal plasmids, and iPSCs successfully passed the stemness and pluripotency tests. Patient-specific hiPSCs were produced to obtain a disease model for the study of this rare condition. Copyright © 2022 The Author(s). Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
