Induced pluripotent stem cells line (UNIPDi003-A) from a patient affected by EEC syndrome carrying the R279H mutation in TP63 gene
Oral mucosa epithelial stem cells from a patient affected by Ectrodactyly-Ectodermal dysplasia-Clefting (EEC) syndrome carrying the R279H mutation in the TP63 gene were reprogrammed into human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) with episomal vectors. The generated UNIPDi003-A-hPSC line retained the mutation of the parental cells and showed a normal karyotype upon long term culture. Analysis of residual transgenes expression showed that the episomal vectors were eliminated from the cell line. UNIPDi003-A-hiPSCs expressed the undifferentiated state marker alkaline phosphatase along with a panel of pluripotency markers, and formed embryoid bodies capable of expressing markers belonging to all the three germ layers.
