Summaries for Germ Cell Cancer

About this section
Disease Ontology:8 A cell type cancer that has material basis in abnormally proliferating cells derived from germ cells.

MalaCards based summary: Germ Cell Cancer, also known as malignant tumor of the germ cell, is related to teratoma and seminoma. An important gene associated with Germ Cell Cancer is AFP (alpha-fetoprotein), and among its related pathways are Glucocorticoid receptor regulatory network and Prolactin signaling pathway. The compounds oestriol and trilostane have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include testis, lymph node and bone marrow, and related mouse phenotypes are tumorigenesis and endocrine/exocrine gland.
