Summaries for Cancerophobia

MalaCards based summary : Cancerophobia, also known as fear of getting cancer, is related to lung cancer and paresthesia. An important gene associated with Cancerophobia is MCIDAS (Multiciliate Differentiation And DNA Synthesis Associated Cell Cycle Protein), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Homologous DNA Pairing and Strand Exchange and Cell cycle Role of SCF complex in cell cycle regulation. Affiliated tissues include breast and lung, and related phenotypes are Decreased homologous recombination repair frequency and Decreased homologous recombination repair frequency
