Title: Expression data from fetal membranes

Accession Number: GSE96557

Link to Dataset:

Repository: Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO)

Data Type(s): Gene Expression

Experiment Type(s): Expression profiling by array

Organism(s): Homo sapiens

Summary: Genome wide expression profiling was used to identify signifnificantly changed genes in fetal membranes after GBS treatment. Genome-wide expression profiles in GBS-inoculated human extraplacental membranes in vitro were used to identify transcriptomic pathways altered by GBS . Using bioinformatics analysis of these expression profiles we aimed to test our hypothesis that GBS activates pathways related to inflammation and premature birth in human extraplacental membranes.
