Abstract

Aicardi-Goutières syndrome (AGS) is an early-onset monogenic encephalopathy characterized by intracranial calcification, leukodystrophy and cerebrospinal fluid lymphocytosis. To date, seven genes have been related to AGS. Among these, IFIH1 encodes for MDA5, a cytosolic double-stranded RNA receptor, and is responsible for AGS type 7. We generated three isogenic iPSC clones, using a Sendai virus-based vector, starting from fibroblasts of a patient carrying a dominant mutation in IFIH1. All lines were characterized for genomic integrity, genetic uniqueness, pluripotency, and differentiation capability. Our clones might offer a good model to investigate AGS7 pathophysiological mechanism and to discover new biomarkers for this condition treatment.
