Generation of two human iPSC lines with Exon 3 mutations in BCL2-Associated Athanogene 3 (BAG3) from dilated cardiomyopathy patients


Dilated cardiomyopathies (DCM) are one of the main causes of heart failure as one ages. BAG3 is a chaperone protein that is heavily implicated in the development of DCM and speed of progression toward heart failure. Here we generate two human iPSC lines from individuals with mutations in exon 3 of BAG3 and provide validation of their pluripotency and ability to differentiate toward the three primary germ layers. These two cell lines can help our understanding of BAG3 and its role in DCM by providing a good model for BAG3 inactivation and insufficiency. Copyright © 2023 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
