Summaries for Cancerophobia

MalaCards based summary : Cancerophobia, also known as fear of getting cancer, is related to breast medullary carcinoma and papillary serous adenocarcinoma. 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. The drugs Dopamine and Norepinephrine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include breast, bone and ovary, and related phenotypes are Decreased homologous recombination repair frequency and Decreased homologous recombination repair frequency
