    Nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (NFE2L2 or Nrf2) is a well-known transcription factor that regulates the expression of a large number of anti-oxidant genes in mammalian cells (J.H. Kim et al., 2014). Here, we generated a homozygous Nrf2 knockout human embryonic stem cell (hESC) line, H9Nrf2KO-A13, using the CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing method. The Nrf2 homozygous knockout H9 cell line maintains pluripotency, differentiation potential into three germ layers, and a normal karyotype.
