Associated Genetic Biomarkers


NCI Definition: An invasive malignant neoplasm that arises from the ovary and originates from primordial germ cells. Representative examples include embryonal carcinoma, yolk sac tumor, dysgerminoma, and non-gestational choriocarcinoma. [1]

Malignant ovarian germ cell tumors most frequently harbor alterations in PIK3CD, KRAS, TP53, TNFRSF14, and SPEN [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Malignant Ovarian Germ Cell Tumor

TP53 c.217-c.1178 Missense, TP53 Mutation, TP53 Missense, KRAS Mutation, and TP53 Exon 7 Mutation are the most common alterations in malignant ovarian germ cell tumor [2].
