Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) is an inherited disorder of retinal degeneration with progressive loss of rod and cone photoreceptors. RPE65 is a gene encoding the trans-cis isomerase which is essential for the classical visual cycle. While most RPE65 mutations associated with RP have been reported as autosome, an Irish c.1430A > G (p.D477G) mutation is the first case reported to cause dominantly inherited RP. In this study, we used the non-integrational Sendai virus to generate induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines carrying the c.1430A > G (p.D477G) mutation from three familial RP patients.
