We report the generation of human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) from dermal fibroblasts of a female patient carrier of the two compound heterozygous mutations c.568 C>T p.R190W (maternal allele), and c.1781 G>A p.R594Q (paternal allele) on the KCNQ1 gene, causing Jervell and Lange-Nielsen Syndrome (JLNS). To obtain hiPSCs, we used the classical approach of the four retroviruses each encoding for a reprogramming factor OCT4, SOX2, KLF4, cMYC. The obtained hiPSC clones display pluripotent stem cell characteristics, and differentiate into spontaneously beating cardiomyocytes (hiPSC-CMs).
