A homozygous p53 R282W mutant human embryonic stem cell line generated using TALEN-mediated precise gene editing


The tumor suppressor gene TP53 is the most frequently mutated gene in human cancers. Many hot-spot mutations of TP53 confer novel functions not found in wild-type p53 and contribute to tumor development and progression. We report on the generation of a H1 human embryonic stem cell line carrying a homozygous TP53 R282W mutation using TALEN-mediated genome editing. The generated cell line demonstrates normal karyotype, maintains a pluripotent state, and is capable of generating a teratoma in vivo containing tissues from all three germ layers.
