Phelan-McDermid syndrome (PMS) is a rare genetic condition that causes global developmental disability, delayed or absent speech, and an autism spectrum disorder. The loss of function of one copy of SHANK3, which codes for a scaffolding protein found in the postsynaptic density of synapses, has been identified as the main cause of PMS. We report the generation and characterization of two induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines derived from one patient with a SHANK3 mutation and the patient's mother as a control. Both lines expressed pluripotency markers, differentiated into the three germ layers, retained the disease-causing mutation, and displayed normal karyotypes.
