Published: iPSC line generated from cells of a participant with an NR5A1 mutation and DSD

The nuclear receptor subfamily 5, Group A, Member 1 (NR5A1) gene encodes steroidogenic factor 1 (SF1), which is necessary for development of steroid hormone-producing tissues including the gonad and adrenal gland. An induced pluripotent stem cell line (iPSC) LCHi002-B was generated from a participant with differences (disorders) of sex development (DSD) and multiple genetic variants including a large deletion in NR5A1, and three single nucleotide changes in DYNC2H1, PDE4D, and ZFPM2. The line presented typical morphology, expressed stem cell markers, differentiated into three germ layers, had normal karyotype, was mycoplasma-free, and carried mutations in NR5A1, DYNC2H1, PDE4D, and ZFPM2.
