Generation of a human induced pluripotent stem cell line (NCCDFWi001-A) from a Marfan syndrome patient carrying two FBN1 variants (c.2613A>C and c.684_736+4del)

Publication date: Available online 18 December 2019Source: Stem Cell ResearchAuthor(s): Baihui Ma, Mingyao Luo, Hang Yang, Tianjiao Li, Weiwei Liu, Faxiang Xu, Chang Shu, Guokai Chen, Zhou ZhouAbstractThe human induced pluripotent stem cell line NCCDFWi001-A was derived from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) of a 26-year-old female Marfan syndrome patient carrying two compound heterozygous variants FBN1c.2613A>C, (p.Leu871Phe) and c.684_736+4del. The established patient-derived iPSC showed expression of pluripotent stem cell markers and had the ability to differentiate into all of the three germ layers and possessed a normal karyotype.

In this study, we generated human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from dermal fibroblasts of an MFS patient with the p. E2130K (c. 6388G > A) mutation. The generated hiPSC line had a normal karyotype, showed robust expression of pluripotency markers and was able to differentiate into all three germ layers in vivo. This cell line can provide a platform for understanding the pathogenic mechanisms of MFS related to FBN1 mutations.Resource table.Unique stem cell identifierCMUi001-AAlternative name(s) of stem cell lineFBN1-E2130K-iPSCInstitutionAnzhen Hospital, Capital Medical UniversityContact information of dist...

Marfan syndrome; A connective tissue disease at the crossroads of mechanotransduction, TGFβ signaling and cell stemness. Matrix Biol. 2017 Aug 04;: Authors: Ramirez F, Caescu C, Wondimu E, Galatioto J Abstract Mutations in fibrillin-1 cause Marfan syndrome (MFS), the most common heritable disorder of connective tissue. Fibrillin-1 assemblies (microfibrils and elastic fibers) represent a unique dual-function component of the architectural matrix. The first role is structural for they endow tissues with tensile strength and elasticity, transmit forces across them and demarcate functionally discrete...

Yarrabothula, Christoph Schaniel Fibroblasts of a 28-year-old female with Marfan syndrome (MFS) due to a heterozygous FBN1 c.4082G>A mutation were reprogrammed using the Sendai virus delivery method. The established human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) line named ISMMSi002-B expresses pluripotency markers, has a normal karyotype, carries the specific FBN1 mutation and is able to differentiate into three germ layers in vitro. ISMMSi002-B has utility in studying MFS pathogenesis, including skele...

We examined the role of fibrillin-1 in adipogenesis. In inbred mouse strains we found significant variation in the level of expression in the Fbn1 gene that correlated with variation in several measures of body fat, suggesting that mouse fibrillin-1 is associated with the level of fat tissue. Furthermore, we found that FBN1 mRNA was up-regulated in the adipose tissue of obese women compared to non-obese, and associated with an increase in adipocyte size. We used human mesenchymal stem cells differentiated in culture to adipocytes to show that fibrillin-1 declines after the initiation of differentiation. Gene expression res...
