The endometrium is a highly regenerative tissue that plays a crucial role in implantation. We examined the clonal constitution of glandular cells as well as the luminal epithelium of this unique tissue. Using collagenase-based digestion techniques with microscopic manipulation, we isolated individual human endometrial glands and examined their clonality using a polymerase chain reaction-based assay for nonrandom X chromosome inactivation with an X-linked androgen receptor gene. Most of the… CONTINUE READING
