EDi001-A-1 Gene-edited iPSC line

Donor information


Disease status


Disease: Parkinson's disease
This is a PD line, with the control being EDi002-A lines and CRISPR/Cas9-corrected EDi001-A-1, EDi001-A-2, EDi001-A-3 and EDi001-A-4
Affected: Yes
Disease variant
Gene: SNCA
Chromosome location: 4q22.1
Zygosity: Heterozygous
Description: The donor carries a triplication of the alpha-synuclein gene, resulting in 4 copies of SNCA. The copies of SNCA are situated in a heterozygous triplication configuration. See Figure 1 of Petrucci, 2015 for a graphic representation of the heterozygous triplication.
Disease associated phenotypes:Severe PD with dementia
Family history:Strong family history of Parkinson’s disease due to autosomal dominant inheritance of SNCA triplication
Medical history:Y Mov Disord. 2011 Sep;26(11):2134-6. doi: 10.1002/mds.23776

Disease/phenotype related genetic modifications

Disease: Parkinson's disease
Type of modification: Isogenic
Gene: SNCA
Chromosome location: 4q22.1
Target locus modification: This clone was picked in parallel to other Nickase pair targeted clones (EDi001-A2/A3 and A4) but no SNCA alleles were lost in this clone. Therefore all 4 alleles remain, and it retains the donor heterozygous triplication of SCNA.
Description: CRISPR/Cas was employed to create a mutation in Exon2, disrupting the ATG start site of SCNA. The site targeted for editing was sequenced for 8 clones; however, in these 8 clones, none of the sites had been modified. Therefore, it appears that the cell line had not been edited. The clone was not further examined for off-target modifications.

Cell Line Information Pack
A Cell Line Information Pack (CLIP) is created to communicate cell line specific information relating to restrictions on use to a user accessing cell lines from EBiSC. A CLIP contains information about a cell line including any specific third party obligations (TPOs) relating to, for example, intellectual property (IP) or the donor consent which affect the use of the cell line.
