MalaCards: Ependymoma, also known as papillary ependymoma, is related to myxopapillary ependymoma and spinal cord ependymoma. An important gene associated with Ependymoma is GFAP (glial fibrillary acidic protein), and among its related pathways are Rho Family GTPases and Neuroscience. The drug carmustine and the compounds paraffin and progesterone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Related mouse phenotypes are mortality/aging and digestive/alimentary.
