Study Description

The Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome is characterized by agenesis of the uterus and upper part of the vagina in females with normal ovarian function. The cause of the disease is still enigmatic. Here, we developed organoid cultures from endometrium found in uterine rudiment horns of MRKH patients. Phenotypically they share great similarity between healthy control organoids and are fully hormone responsive. Transcriptome analysis using RNA-seq identified possible disease-causing pathways altered in MRKH patients during development of the female reproductive tract. Thus, the organoid cultures provide a powerful research model for further insight into disease-causing alterations.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
Raw, unfiltered fastq files obtained through RNA-seq of endometrial organoids from MRKH patients and controls. The dataset divides into three parts, depending on the growth conditions of the organoids, ie expansion medium or treated with hormones. Each sample consists of two paired-end fastq files.
