ALTERED ANDROGEN SIGNALING PATHWAY (PW:0000784)

View Ontology Report

Description

The androgen signaling pathway plays important roles in the development and maintenance of male phenotype and reproductive functions and in a range of other processes in nonreproductive tissues. Up-regulation of the pathway, primarily at the level of the receptor, has been associated with the development and progression of prostate cancer. Prostate neoplasm is a common form of cancer affecting about 1 in 5 men. Normal as well as malignant prostate tissues rely on the action of androgen hormones
