Two New Studies Uncover a Dozen New Testicular Cancer Risk Loci | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Two studies appearing in Nature Genetics this week have uncovered about a dozen new loci linked to testicular cancer risk.

The novel susceptibility loci are located near genes known to be involved in spermatogenesis, chromosomal segregation, and DNA damage response as well as germ cell specification and telomerase regulation — pathways that have possible biological connections to the development of testicular germ cell tumors.
