Germline missense mutations in the BAF swi/snf chromatin remodeling subunit SMARCA4 are associated with neurodevelopmental disorders, including Coffin Siris Syndrome (CSS). Here, we generated an induced pluripotent stem cell line from a male patient with atypical CSS features and a de novo heterozygous missense mutation in the SMARCA4 gene (c.3607C>T, p.(Arg1203Cys)). Hair root derived keratinocytes were reprogrammed using non-integrative Sendai virus vector delivery of pluripotency factors. iPSCs generated display normal morphology and molecular karyotype, express pluripotency markers and are able to differentiate into the three germ layers.
