MalaCards: Germinoma is related to teratoma and precocious puberty. An important gene associated with Germinoma is CGB (chorionic gonadotropin, beta polypeptide), and among its related pathways are Metabolism of steroid hormones and vitamin D and Selected targets of Oct 3 4. The compounds oestriol and ctp have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include pineal, spinal cord and brain.
