Angelman Syndrome [AG1-0] Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

These induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have been derived from previously banked fibroblasts from a female individual with Angelman syndrome (AS). Like the person they were derived from, these iPSCs have an approximately 5 Mb deletion of maternal 15q11.2-q13.1.

Angelman syndrome (AS) is a neurogenetic disorder that leads to severe mental retardation, lack of speech, seizures, and ataxia. AS is caused by loss of function of the maternally inherited allele of UBE3A. The UBE3A gene encodes an E3 ubiquitin ligase and is subject to tissue-specific genomic imprinting; it is expressed exclusively from the maternal allele in neurons, but is bi-allelically expressed in other tissues. Approximately 70% of individuals with AS have a large deletion of the maternal allele of chromosome 15q11-q13.
