Generation of induced pluripotent stem cell line carrying frameshift variants in NPHP1 (UCSFi001-A-68) using CRISPR/Cas9


NPHP1 (Nephrocystin 1) is a protein that localizes to the transition zone of the cilium, a small organelle that projects from the plasma membrane of most cells and allows for integration and coordination of signalling pathways during development and homeostasis. Loss of NPHP1 function due to biallelic NPHP1 gene mutations can lead to the development of ciliopathies - a heterogeneous spectra of disorders characterized by ciliary dysfunction. Here we report the generation of an NPHP1-null hiPSC line (UCSFi001-A-68) via CRISPR/Cas9-mediated non-homologous end joining in the UCSFi001-A background, for study of the role that this protein plays in different tissues.
