Fanconi Bickel Syndrome (FBS) is an autosomal recessive disease resulting from mutations in the SLC2A2 gene, encoding the GLUT2. FBS patients develop diabetes mellitus. Using non-integrating Sendai virus, we generated an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line, QBRIi007-A, carrying the c.613-7 T>G homozygous mutation in intron 5 of the SLC2A2 gene from a 19-year-old female with FBS and diabetes. The iPSC line was characterized for pluripotency, differentiation potential, genomic integrity, and genetic identity. This iPSC line provides a useful cell model to understand the role of GLUT2 in the disease development and to discover new drug candidates.
