Generation of an iPSC line from a patient with infantile liver failure syndrome 2 due to mutations in NBAS: DHMCi004-A


Fibroblasts of a patient with Infantile Liver Failure Syndrome 2 (OMIM #616483) due to a homozygous missense variant in the neuroblastoma amplified sequence gene (NBAS; c.[2708T>G]; c.[2708T>G]/p.[Leu903Arg]; p.[Leu903Arg]) were reprogrammed to iPSCs using the Cytotune®-iPS 2.0 Sendai Reprogramming Kit (Invitrogen) delivering the reprogramming factors Oct3/4, Sox2, c-Myc and Klf4. Cells showed a normal karyotype. Pluripotency of DHMCi004-A was proven using immunohistochemistry, RT-PCR analysis, flow cytometry and differentiation into all three germ layers using the STEMdiff™ Trilineage Differentiation Kit (Stemcell Technologies). DHMCi004-A represents the first iPS-based cell model system to elucidate the pathomechanism underlying this disease. Copyright © 2019 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
