Summaries for Pituitary-Dependent Cushing's Disease

MalaCards based summary : Pituitary-Dependent Cushing's Disease, also known as pituitary-dependent cushing disease, is related to acth-secreting pituitary adenoma and bronchus adenoma. An important gene associated with Pituitary-Dependent Cushing's Disease is SST (Somatostatin), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and Corticotropin-releasing hormone signaling pathway. The drugs Somatostatin and Liraglutide have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include pituitary, brain and testes, and related phenotypes are homeostasis/metabolism and endocrine/exocrine gland
