Summaries for Transsexualism

Disease Ontology : 12 A gender identity disorder that is characterized by an individual's identification with a gender inconsistent or not culturally associated with their biological sex.

MalaCards based summary : Transsexualism is related to hyperandrogenism and osteoporosis. An important gene associated with Transsexualism is ESR2 (Estrogen Receptor 2), and among its related pathways/superpathways are TGF-beta Signaling Pathways and Nuclear Receptor transcription pathway. The drugs Lynestrenol and Estradiol have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include testes, brain and adipocyte, and related phenotypes are endocrine/exocrine gland and adipose tissue
