Abstract

Autosomal recessive Stargardt disease is the most common cause of inherited retinal disease. In this report, we describe the generation and characterization of two human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines from a patient with compound heterozygous mutations in the ABCA4 gene (c.[768G>T];[6079C>T]). Patient dermal fibroblasts were reprogrammed using episomal plasmids encoding OCT4, SOX2, KLF4, L-MYC, LIN28, mir302/367 microRNA and shRNA for P53. The clonal iPSC lines LEIi012-A and LEIi012-B were established. Both lines had a normal karyotype, displayed iPSC morphology, expressed pluripotency genes at similar levels to control iPSC and displayed trilineage differentiation potential during embryoid body differentiation.
