Abstract

PRPF31 gene codes for a ubiquitously expressed splicing factor but mutations affect exclusively the retina, producing the progressive death of photoreceptor cells. We have identified a novel PRPF31 mutation in a patient with autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa. A blood sample was obtained and mononuclear cells were reprogrammed using the non-integrative Sendai virus to generate the cell line CABi001-A. The iPSC line has been characterized for pluripotency and differentiation capacity and will be differentiated toward photoreceptors and retinal pigment epithelium cells to study the molecular mechanism of the disease and test possible therapeutic strategies.
