Pathogenic sequence variants in the Sorting Nexin 10 (SNX10) gene have been associated with autosomal recessive osteopetrosis (ARO) in human. In this study, an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line (ARO-iPSC1-11) was generated from an ARO patient carrying the homozygous c.212+1G>T mutation in SNX10, using a retroviral-based reprogramming protocol. Characterization confirmed that the generated iPSCs expressed pluripotency markers, displayed normal karyotype, showed pluripotent differentiation capacity and retained the targeted mutation. Disease modeling with this ARO patient-specific iPSC line will shed further light on the critical role of the SNX10 mutation in ARO development.
