Generation of a PDGFRB-mCherry knock-in reporter human induced pluripotent stem cell line (KITi001-A-1), using CRISPR/Cas9 nuclease
PDGFRB encodes platelet-derived growth factor receptor beta (PDGFR-β), a cell surface tyrosine kinase receptor for members of the platelet-derived growth factor family. It is required for the normal development of the vascular and nervous systems and rearrangement of the actin cytoskeleton. PDGFR-β plays an essential role in early liver diseases, including liver fibrosis. Here, we generated a human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line, KITi001-A-1, using CRISPR/Cas9. This reporter iPSC line and its derivatives are useful for tracing PDGFR-β-expressing cells and for screening for liver fibrosis-inducing compounds. Copyright © 2023 The Author(s).
