Currently there is a lack of drugs that target the defected slowly activating delayed rectifier potassium channel (IKs). With LQT1 patient-specific human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC)-derived cardiomyocytes (hiPSC-CMs), we tested the effects of a selective IKs activator ML277 on reversing the disease phenotypes. Methods: A LQT1 family with a novel heterozygous exon 7 deletion in the KCNQ1 gene was identified. Dermal fibroblasts from the proband and her healthy father were reprogrammed to hiPSCs and subsequently differentiated into hiPSC-CMs. Results: Compared with the control, LQT1 patient hiPSC-CMs showed reduced levels of wild type KCNQ1 mRNA accompanied by multiple exon skipping mRNAs and a ?50% reduction of the full length Kv7.1 protein. Patient hiPSC-CMs showed reduced IKs current (tail current density at 30 mV: 0.33 ñ 0.02 vs. 0.92 ñ 0.21, P < 0.05) and prolonged action potential duration (APD) (APD 50 and APD90: 603.9 ñ 39.2 vs. 319.3 ñ 13.8 ms, P < 0.005; and 671.0 ñ 41.1 vs. 372.9 ñ 14.2 ms, P < 0.005).
