MalaCards: Spermatocele is related to hydrocele and epididymitis. An important gene associated with Spermatocele is SLC26A3 (solute carrier family 26 (anion exchanger), member 3), and among its related pathways are Calcineurin-regulated NFAT-dependent transcription in lymphocytes and RIG-I/MDA5 mediated induction of IFN-alpha/beta pathways. The compounds rantes and cilomilast have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include prostate and kidney, and related mouse phenotype digestive/alimentary.
