Transcriptome datasets of ESR2-regulated genes in rat granulosa cells during gonadotropin-induced follicle maturation.

ABSTRACT: Disruption of estrogen receptor beta (ESR2) dysregulates granulosa cell genes essential for follicle maturation and ovulation. The datasets presented in this article depict gonadotropin-induced genes, which are differentially expressed in Esr2-null rat granulosa cells. Synchronized follicle development was initiated in four-week-old wildtype and Esr2-null female rats by administration of PMSG. Forty-eight hours after PMSG injection, further maturation of ovarian follicles was induced by hCG treatment. Granulosa cells were collected from the ovaries before gonadotropin administration, 48?h after PMSG treatment, and 4?h after hCG injection to the PMSG-treated rats. Total RNA was purified from granulosa cells and whole transcriptome was assessed by RNA-sequencing on an Illumina HiSeq X platform. RNA-seq data of wildtype and Esr2-null granulosa cells were analyzed and differentially expressed genes were identified by CLC Genomics Workbench. Gonadotropin-induced genes were identified by comparing the transcriptome data of PMSG- or hCG-induced wildtype granulosa cells with those without gonadotropin treatment. Furthermore, differentially expressed genes in Esr2-null granulosa cells were determined by comparing the transcriptome data with that of wildtype granulosa cells. These datasets can be used to recognize the gonadotropin-induced genes in granulosa cells that are Esr2-regulated and important for ovarian follicle maturation.
