Study Description

Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominantly inherited neurocutaneous disorder caused by inactivating mutations in TSC1 or TSC2, key regulators of the mechanistic target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) pathway. In the central nervous system TSC is characterized by cortical tubers, subependymal nodules and subependymal giant cell astrocytomas (SEGAs). SEGAs may lead to the impaired circulation of cerebrospinal fluid resulting in hydrocephalus and raised intracranial pressure in patients with TSC. Currently, surgical resection and mTORC1 inhibitors are the recommended treatment options for patients with SEGA. Here, we performed RNA-Seq and small RNA-Seq on SEGAs (n=19) and periventricular controls (n=8) to gain a better understanding of the underlying molecular basis of SEGAs, so that novel treatment targets could be identified.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
This data set contains small RNA-sequencing and RNA-sequencing data from subependymal giant cell astrocytomas (SEGA) resected from tuberous sclerosis complex patients. Small RNA-sequencing and RNA-sequencing were performed on the same set of SEGAs (n=19) and periventricular controls (n=8).
