The role of Neurochondrin (NCDN) in humans is not well understood. Mice with a conditional Ncdn knock-out show epileptic seizures, depressive-like behaviours and impaired spatial learning. Using CRISPR/Cas9, we generated a Neurochondrin deficient human iPSC line KICRi002-A-3 carrying a homozygous 752 bp deletion / 2 bp insertion in the NCDN gene. The iPSC line maintained a normal 46,XY karyotype, expressed pluripotency markers and exhibited capability to differentiate into the three germ layers in vitro. Off-target editing was excluded and Neurochondrin expression was not detectable. The iPSC line offers a valuable resource to study the role of Neurochondrin during human neurogenesis.
