Tissue Summary: ovary (TS20-TS28)
The embryonic ovary is composed mainly of mesenchymal stroma, surrounding the germ cells. During pre- and postnatal development the ovary morphology changes and in the adult it is mainly comprised of mesenchymal stroma, which can be divided into cortical and medullary regions, and the corpus luteum, corpus albicans and follicles which are located in the cortex.

In Situ Data
Validated Anchor/Marker Genes
Anchor genes are defined as genes whose expression is restricted to one temporospatial anatomical compartment. These have been selected by microarray analyses followed by validation using section in-situ hybridisation.
Currently no defined anchor genes for this component
Marker genes are defined as genes which display a regional or enriched expression pattern and may be useful in identifying one or more particular temporospatial compartment(s). These have been selected by microarray analyses followed by validation using section in-situ hybridisation.
