Some neoplasm proteins are tumor antigens (ANTIGENS, NEOPLASM), i.e. they induce an immune reaction to their tumor. Many neoplasm proteins have been characterized and are used as tumor markers (BIOMARKERS, TUMOR) when they are detectable in cells and body fluids as monitors for the presence or growth of tumors. Abnormal expression of ONCOGENE PROTEINS is involved in neoplastic transformation, whereas the loss of expression of TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEINS is involved with the loss of growth control and progression of the neoplasm.
Biochemical identification of mutational changes in a nucleotide sequence.
The reconstruction of a continuous two-stranded DNA molecule without mismatch from a molecule which contained damaged regions. The major repair mechanisms are excision repair, in which defective regions in one strand are excised and resynthesized using the complementary base pairing information in the intact strand; photoreactivation repair, in which the lethal and mutagenic effects of ultraviolet light are eliminated; and post-replication repair, in which the primary lesions are not repaired, but the gaps in one daughter duplex are filled in by incorporation of portions of the other (undamaged) daughter duplex. Excision repair and post-replication repair are sometimes referred to as "dark repair" because they do not require light.

Mapping the functional domains of BRCA1. Interaction of the ring finger domains of BRCA1 and BARD1. (1/1487)

Breast cancer 1 (BRCA1) and BRCA1-associated RING domain 1 (BARD1) are multidomain proteins that interact in vivo via their N-terminal RING finger motif regions. To characterize functional aspects of the BRCA1/BARD1 interaction, we have defined the structural domains required for the interaction, as well as their oligomerization state, relative stability, and possible nucleic acid binding activity. We have found that the RING finger motifs do not themselves constitute stable structural domains but are instead part of larger domains comprising residues 1-109 of BRCA1 and residues 26-119 of BARD1. These domains exist as homodimers and preferentially form a stable heterodimer. Shorter BRCA1 RING finger constructs do not interact with BARD1 or with longer BRCA1 constructs, indicating that the heterodimeric and homodimer interactions are mediated by regions outside the canonical RING finger motif. Nucleic acid binding is a generally proposed function of RING finger domains. We show that neither the homodimers nor the heterodimer displays affinity for nucleic acids, indicating that the proposed roles of BRCA1 and BARD1 in DNA repair and/or transcriptional activation must be mediated either by other regions of the proteins or by additional cofactors.  (+info)

Chromatin remodeling and activation of chromosomal DNA replication by an acidic transcriptional activation domain from BRCA1. (2/1487)

An increasing number of transcription factors have been shown to activate DNA replication. However, the underlying mechanism remains to be elucidated. Here it is shown that when tethered to a cellular replication origin, the acidic transcriptional activation domain of the breast cancer protein BRCA1 alters the local chromatin structure and stimulates chromosomal DNA replication. Cancer-predisposing mutations in BRCA1 that abolish transcriptional activation also prevent chromatin remodeling and activation of replication. Chromatin remodeling occurs even in the absence of a functional replication origin. Thus, increasing chromatin accessibility may be an important mechanism used by transcription factors to facilitate multiple nuclear processes.  (+info)

Should insurance pay for preventive services suggested by genetics? (3/1487)

Physicians, plans and patients are discovering that the promise of genetic testing will be hard to fulfill. Even when a test can show predisposition toward a disease, performing it can't necessarily improve medical outcomes. Unfortunately, doing these tests can have some unintended negative effects.  (+info)

BRCA1 and BRCA2 proteins: roles in health and disease. (4/1487)

Between 5% and 10% of all breast cancer is hereditary, with patients having a strong family history of the disease. The remaining 90-95% of cases are classed as sporadic. Within the inherited group, 80-90% of cases are the result of germline mutations affecting two recently identified genes: BRCA1 and BRCA2. Since the sequencing of these genes, considerable research on the genetics of the mutation carriers has been performed, with less attention having been focused on the BRCA1 and BRCA2 proteins themselves. The structure and function of the protein products thus continues to hold mystery and might be the key to the full understanding of this complex disease.  (+info)

Binding of CtIP to the BRCT repeats of BRCA1 involved in the transcription regulation of p21 is disrupted upon DNA damage. (5/1487)

Mutations in BRCA1 are responsible for nearly all of the hereditary ovarian and breast cancers, and about half of those in breast cancer-only kindreds. The ability of BRCA1 to transactivate the p21 promoter can be inactivated by mutation of the conserved BRCA1 C-terminal (BRCT) repeats. To explore the mechanisms of this BRCA1 function, the BRCT repeats were used as bait in a yeast two-hybrid screen. A known protein, CtIP, a co-repressor with CtBP, was found. CtIP interacts specifically with the BRCT repeats of BRCA1, both in vitro and in vivo, and tumor-derived mutations in this region abolished these interactions. The association of BRCA1 with CtIP was also abrogated in cells treated with DNA-damaging agents including UV, gamma-irradiation, and adriamycin, a response correlated with BRCA1 phosphorylation. The transactivation of the p21 promoter by BRCA1 was diminished by expression of exogenous CtIP and CtBP. These results suggest that the binding of the BRCT repeats of BRCA1 to CtIP/CtBP is critical in mediating transcriptional regulation of p21 in response to DNA damage.  (+info)

Germline BRCA1 alterations in a population-based series of ovarian cancer cases. (6/1487)

The objective of this study was to provide more accurate frequency estimates of breast cancer susceptibility gene 1 ( BRCA1 ) germline alterations in the ovarian cancer population. To achieve this, we determined the prevalence of BRCA1 alterations in a population-based series of consecutive ovarian cancer cases. This is the first population-based ovarian cancer study reporting BRCA1 alterations derived from a comprehensive screen of the entire coding region. One hundred and seven ovarian cancer cases were analyzed for BRCA1 alterations using the RNase mismatch cleavage assay followed by direct sequencing. Two truncating mutations, 962del4 and 3600del11, were identified. Both patients had a family history of breast or ovarian cancer. Several novel as well as previously reported uncharacterized variants were also identified, some of which were associated with a family history of cancer. The frequency distribution of common polymorphisms was determined in the 91 Caucasian cancer cases in this series and 24 sister controls using allele-specific amplification. The rare form of the Q356R polymorphism was significantly ( P = 0.03) associated with a family history of ovarian cancer, suggesting that this polymorphism may influence ovarian cancer risk. In summary, our data suggest a role for some uncharacterized variants and rare forms of polymorphisms in determining ovarian cancer risk, and highlight the necessity to screen for missense alterations as well as truncating mutations in this population.  (+info)

Centrosome amplification and a defective G2-M cell cycle checkpoint induce genetic instability in BRCA1 exon 11 isoform-deficient cells. (7/1487)

Germline mutations of the Brca1 tumor suppressor gene predispose women to breast and ovarian cancers. To study mechanisms underlying BRCA1-related tumorigenesis, we derived mouse embryonic fibroblast cells carrying a targeted deletion of exon 11 of the Brca1 gene. We show that the mutant cells maintain an intact G1-S cell cycle checkpoint and proliferate poorly. However, a defective G2-M checkpoint in these cells is accompanied by extensive chromosomal abnormalities. Mutant fibroblasts contain multiple, functional centrosomes, which lead to unequal chromosome segregation, abnormal nuclear division, and aneuploidy. These data uncover an essential role of BRCA1 in maintaining genetic stability through the regulation of centrosome duplication and the G2-M checkpoint and provide a molecular basis for the role of BRCA1 in tumorigenesis.  (+info)

Methylation of the BRCA1 promoter region in sporadic breast and ovarian cancer: correlation with disease characteristics. (8/1487)

Reduced expression of BRCA1 has been reported in sporadic breast cancer, although the mechanisms underlying this phenomenon remain unclear. Abnormal methylation leading to silencing of tumour suppressor genes has been implicated in tumorigenesis in a wide range of sporadic cancers. Therefore, we sought to determine the frequency of methylation within the BRCA1 promoter region in a large group of sporadic invasive breast (n =96) and ovarian (n = 43) carcinomas using Southern analyses. Overall, methylation was detected in 11% of breast cancer cases and in 5% of ovarian tumours. Methylation of the BRCA1 promoter region was strongly correlated with lack of estrogen and progesterone receptor expression. It is clear from the frequency of abnormal methylation of the BRCA1 promoter region, that this cannot be the sole mechanism mediating the reduced expression of BRCA1 that has previously been reported to occur in the majority of invasive sporadic breast tumours. Nevertheless this study suggests that abnormal methylation of the BRCA1 promoter may be important in tumorigenesis in a subset of sporadic breast and ovarian cancers.  (+info)

BRCA1 is a breast cancer susceptibility gene that is down-regulated in a significant proportion of sporadic breast cancers. BRCA1 is posttranscriptionally regulated by RNA-binding proteins, the identities of which are unknown. HuR is an RNA binding protein implicated in posttranscriptional regulation of many genes and is overexpressed in sporadic breast cancer. To investigate the possibility that these two molecules are functionally linked in breast cancer, we performed bioinformatic analysis of the BRCA1 3 untranslated region (UTR), RNA-protein assays with the HuR protein and the BRCA1 3UTR, and immunohistochemical analysis of a cohort of breast tumors using antibodies against BRCA1 and HuR. Here, we describe the identification of two predicted HuR-binding sites in the BRCA1 3UTR, one of which binds specifically to HuR. We also show that this interaction is disrupted by single nucleotide substitutions in the BRCA1 3UTR and that endogenous HuR protein associates with BRCA1 transcripts in ...
Given how BRCA2 is believed to function as a tumour suppressor, assays related to DNA repair are directly relevant to predicting the impact of BRCA2 variants on cancer risk and therapeutic response. Additionally, such assays have demonstrated high sensitivity and specificity for predicting known benign and pathogenic variants. For these reasons, DNA repair-related assays are considered here.21 Since DNA repair-related domains are distributed throughout BRCA2, as discussed earlier, such assays should be based on expression of full-length BRCA2. BRCA2 is even larger than BRCA1 (the protein is ~390 kDa and the cDNA is 10 254 bp). Thus, it has been difficult to express full-length BRCA2 in human cells using a cDNA.69 73 As such, some functional studies of BRCA2 VUS have been based on heterologous expression of full-length BRCA2 variants in mouse ESCs using BACs.71 72 These studies, in the laboratory of Shyam Sharan, focused on VUS in the N-terminal PALB2-binding domain and the C-terminal DBD, where ...
Breast Cancer is very common among Canadians. The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation reported in 2014 1 in 9 women in Canada is expected to develop breast cancer during her lifetime. Today we are focusing on the genetic aspects of developing breast cancer in the body.. BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes - BRCA1 and BRCA 2 known, as a Breast Cancer Susceptibility Gene 1 and Breast Cancer Susceptibility Gene 2 are human genes and works as tumor suppressors.. How BRCA1 and BRCA2 connect to cancer? When any of those genes mutate, it causes DNA damage and it might not be able to repair properly, and as a results cell can develop additional genetic alterations. Inherited mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 then increase the risk of breast and ovarian cancer.. NOTE: BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations can be inherited from a persons mother or father. Anyone who has inherited a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation could be an increase risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer.. Breast cancer statistics - Breast Cancer Society of Canada has ...
In recent years, numerous studies have assessed the prevalence of germline mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes in various cohorts. We here extensively investigated the prevalence and geographical distribution of BRCA1-2 mutations in the entire genetically-homogeneous Sardinian population. The occurrence of phenotypic characteristics which may be predictive for the presence of BRCA1-2 germline mutations was also evaluated. Three hundred and forty-eight breast cancer patients presenting a familial recurrence of invasive breast or ovarian carcinoma with at least two affected family members were screened for BRCA1-2 mutations by DHPLC analysis and DNA sequencing. Association of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutational status with clinical and pathological parameters was evaluated by Pearsons Chi-Squared test. Overall, 8 BRCA1 and 5 BRCA2 deleterious mutations were detected in 35/348 (10%) families; majority (23/35;66%) of mutations was found in BRCA2 gene. The geographical distribution of BRCA1-2 mutations was related to

N2 - Synthetic lethal therapeutic strategy using poly(adenosine diphosphate [ADP]-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitor olaparib in carriers of BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation has shown promise in clinical settings. Since ≤5 % of patients are BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation carriers, small molecules that functionally mimic BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations will extend the synthetic lethal therapeutic option for non-mutation carriers. Here we provide proof of principle for this strategy using a BRCA1 inhibitor peptide 2 that targets the BRCT(BRCA1)-phosphoprotein interaction and mimics the M177R/K BRCA1 mutation. Reciprocal immunoprecipitation and immunoblotting of BRCA1 and Abraxas was used to ...
About 5% to 10% of breast cancers are thought to be hereditary, caused by abnormal genes passed from parent to child.. Genes are particles in cells, contained in chromosomes, and made of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). DNA contains the instructions for building proteins. And proteins control the structure and function of all the cells that make up your body.. Most inherited cases of breast cancer are associated with two abnormal genes: BRCA1 (BReast CAncer gene one) and BRCA2 (BReast CAncer gene two).. Everyone has BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. The function of the BRCA genes is to repair cell damage and keep breast cells growing normally. But when these genes contain abnormalities or mutations that are passed from generation to generation, the genes dont function normally and breast cancer risk increases. Abnormal BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes may account for up to 10% of all breast cancers, or 1 out of every 10 cases.. Having an abnormal BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene doesnt mean you will be diagnosed with breast cancer. ...
Given that breast cancers in germline BRCA1 carriers are predominantly estrogen-negative and triple-negative, it has been suggested that women diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) younger than 50 years should be offered BRCA1 testing, regardless of family cancer characteristics. However, the predictive value of triple-negative breast cancer, when taken in the context of personal and family cancer characteristics, is unknown. The aim of this study was to determine whether TNBC is a predictor of germline BRCA1 mutations, in the context of multiple predictive factors. Germline mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 were analyzed by Sanger sequencing and multiple ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) analysis in 431 women from the Malaysian Breast Cancer Genetic Study, including 110 women with TNBC. Logistic regression was used to identify and to estimate the predictive strength of major determinants. Estrogen receptor (ER) and phosphatase and tensin homologue (PTEN) status were assessed and
SNPedia currently contains 2606 BRCA1 SNPs and 3099 BRCA2 SNPs. Some of the variations in these genes are linked to Breast cancer and ovarian cancer, and other variations are benign. See also BRCA1 and BRCA2 for individual gene discussions and links. Microarray platforms used by DTC genomics testing companies such as FamilyTree DNA and 23andMe usually test a fraction of the known BRCA1 or BRCA2 SNPs, typically, the most common ones. While DTC genomics testing may lead to useful results, it is not a substitute for the full genetic panel testing or gene sequencing that may be warranted by a family history of breast cancer. The percent of known BRCA1 and BRCA2 syndrome disease-causing mutations that are tested by several companies is shown in the following table: ...
Men with prostate cancer who are carriers of the BRCA2 gene mutation have significantly increased mortality rates.. The study identified 938 families with the BRCA2 mutation, of which 277 (29.5%) contained one or more cases of prostate cancer, with a total of 434 cases. Of these, 67 men were found to carry the familial BRCA2 mutation and 116 were probable mutation carriers. A comparison group of men with the BRCA1 mutation was also identified. Of 1,735 families, 316 contained one or more cases of prostate cancer (18.2%), with a total of 457 cases. Of these, 37 carried the BRCA1 mutation and 82 men were probable carriers. The average age at diagnosis was similar for the two groups.. Survival analysis was performed to establish the overall survival of BRCA2 carriers with prostate cancer and relative survival compared with BRCA1 carriers. The median survival time was 4.0 years for the BRCA2 group compared with 8.0 years for the BRCA1 group, and the risk of mortality was found to be 70% greater in ...
Ataxia-telangiectasia mutation (ATM) has previously been shown to be necessary for the phosphorylation of BRCA1 to occur in response to gamma-irradiation, and capable of directly phosphorylating BRCA1 in vitro (see additional information). This paper indicates that ATM can also cause the phosphorylation of BRCA1 by activating the hCds1/CHK2 kinase, for which BRCA1 is a substrate. Phosphorylation of BRCA1 in response to other genotoxins appears to be independent of ATM (Scully et al, Cell 1997, 90: 425-435 [Abstract]). ATM-independent activation of hCds1/CHK2 may explain how some of these other genotoxins cause BRCA1 phosphorylation.. The ATM-hCds1/CHK2-BRCA1 DNA damage response pathway is clearly important for tumour suppression since heterozygous carriers of mutant BRCA1, ATM and hCds1/hCHK2 genes (see additional information) have all been reported to be predisposed to breast cancer. ...
Consistent with previous reports, we observed somatic or germline mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes associated with a large proportion of HGSC tumors, and these were almost completely mutually exclusive. Mutual exclusivity may reflect a functional equivalence of the mutations, in which there is no selective advantage to a tumor cell by possessing more than one defect in the BRCA pathway. Sensitivity to platinum-based therapy in the primary (28) and relapse setting (8), as well as significant responses to PARP inhibitors (29) are all consistent with the notion of a shared BRCAness phenotype of tumors arising in BRCA1/2 carriers (30). However, recent evidence points to important clinical and pathologic differences in the behavior of tumors arising in women with BRCA1 compared with BRCA2 mutations.. Although both genes encode proteins that participate in the HRR pathway, BRCA1 has both an earlier and wider role in DNA damage response (31-33) and additional cellular functions, including ...

Modular domains of proteins are important in cellular signaling processes. Eukaryotic cells are constantly undergoing DNA damage due to exogenous and endogenous sources of damage. The DNA damage response (DDR) involves a complex network of signaling events mediated by modular domains such as the BRCT (BRCA1 C-terminal) domains. Therefore, proteins containing BRCT domains are important for DNA damage detection and signaling. In this dissertation, we focus on two BRCT-containing proteins BRCA1 and PAXIP1. BRCA1 is a gene that is known to be associated with increased risk of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Germline variants of BRCA1 are assessed to determine lifetime risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer. This is performed by genetic testing of the BRCA1 sequence and the variants can be classified as pathogenic, non-pathogenic or variants of unknown significance (VUS). Using family history, segregation analysis, co-occurrence and tumor pathology, certain variants have been classified as either
The prevalence and spectrum of germline mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 have been reported in single populations, with the majority of reports focused on White in Europe and North America. The Consortium of Investigators of Modifiers of BRCA1/2 (CIMBA) has assembled data on 18,435 families with BRCA1 mutations and 11,351 families with BRCA2 mutations ascertained from 69 centers in 49 countries on six continents. This study comprehensively describes the characteristics of the 1,650 unique BRCA1 and 1,731 unique BRCA2 deleterious (disease-associated) mutations identified in the CIMBA database. We observed substantial variation in mutation type and frequency by geographical region and race/ethnicity. In addition to known founder mutations, mutations of relatively high frequency were identified in specific racial/ethnic or geographic groups that may reflect founder mutations and which could be used in targeted (panel) first pass genotyping for specific populations. Knowledge of the population-specific
Abnormalities caused by targeted disruption of the Brca2 gene include increased sensitivity to DNA damage induced by ionizing irradiation, UV light, and other genotoxic agents (27, 33, 34). The accumulation of double-strand DNA breaks and chromosomal abnormalities combined with the lack of obvious checkpoint or apoptotic response abnormalities in Brca2 mutant cells have implied a role of BRCA2 in DNA repair (33, 34). Recent findings that BRCA2 and RAD51 interact in vitro have suggested further that BRCA2 may be involved in RAD51-mediated repair pathways (27, 35, 36). In this study, we identified the BRCA2 gene product as a 460-kDa nuclear phosphoprotein that forms a complex with RAD51 in vivo. While this manuscript was in preparation, Chen et al. (44) reported detection of BRCA2 as a nuclear protein, consistent with our findings. They also reported detection of immunocomplexes containing BRCA2 and RAD51 (44). Our findings established that a major fraction of endogenous RAD51 is associated with ...
article{81b520fa-fde6-40e1-9977-b09909f3e717, abstract = {Inherited mutations in the tumor suppressor genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 predispose carriers to breast and ovarian cancer. The authors have identified a mutation in BRCA2, 7845+1G > A (c.7617+1G > A), not previously regarded as deleterious because of incorrect mapping of the splice junction in the originally published genomic reference sequence. This reference sequence is generally used in many laboratories and it maps the mutation 16 base pairs inside intron 15. However, according to the recent reference sequences the mutation is located in the consensus donor splice sequence. By reverse transcriptase analysis, loss of exon 15 in the final transcript interrupting the open reading frame was demonstrated. Furthermore, the mutation segregates with a cancer phenotype in 18 Danish families. By genetic analysis of more than 3,500 Danish breast/ovarian cancer risk families, the mutation was identified as the most common BRCA2 mutation in West ...
To explore the relation of BRCA1 to these foci, we assayed, for IRIF (17), HCC1937 cells that express a COOH-terminally truncated BRCA1 protein (19). BRCA1 foci were diminished in these cells, and the nuclear staining of BRCA1 was homogenous, albeit much dimmer, in HCC1937 cells regardless of treatment (Fig. 3B). Interestingly, hRad50, hMre11, and p95 IRIF were dramatically reduced in HCC1937 cells. Most of the irradiated cells displayed a diffuse nuclear pattern of hRad50, hMre11, or p95 immunostaining similar to that seen in untreated HCC1937 cells. In contrast, IRIF that were positive for hRad51 antibodies were readily and efficiently detected in both T24 and HCC1937 cells (Fig. 3B).. In addition to BRCA1 mutation, HCC1937 also harbors many other genetic changes (19). To determine whether the BRCA1 deficiency was responsible for the defect in IRIF formation, we transiently transfected hemagglutinin (HA)-tagged wild-type BRCA1 into HCC1937 cells and irradiated cells 40 hours later. Of the ...
Germline mutations in the tumor-suppressor gene BRCA2 predispose to breast and ovarian cancer. BRCA2 plays a well-established role in maintaining genome stability by regulating homologous recombination. BRCA2 has more recently been implicated in cytokinesis, the final step of cell division, but the molecular basis for this remains unknown. We have used time-lapse microscopy, recently developed cytokinesis assays and BAC recombineering (bacterial artificial chromosome recombinogenic engineering to investigate the function and localization of BRCA2 during cell division. Our analysis suggests that BRCA2 does not regulate cytokinesis in human cells. Thus, cytokinesis defects are unlikely to contribute to chromosomal instability and tumorigenesis in BRCA2-related cancers. ...
Mutation of BRCA1 and BRCA2 is the most common cause of inherited breast and ovarian cancer. Genetic screens to detect carriers of variants can aid in cancer prevention by identifying individuals with a greater cancer risk and can potentially be used to predict the responsiveness of tumours to therapy. Frequently, classification cannot be performed based on traditional approaches such as segregation analyses, including for many missense variants, which are therefore referred to as variants of uncertain significance (VUS). Functional assays provide an important alternative for classification of BRCA1 and BRCA2 VUS. As reviewed here, both of these tumour suppressors promote the maintenance of genome stability via homologous recombination. Thus, related assays may be particularly relevant to cancer risk. Progress in implementing functional assays to assess missense variants of BRCA1 and BRCA2 is considered here, along with current limitations and the path to more impactful assay systems. While ...
BRCA1 and BRCA2 are important breast and ovarian cancer susceptibility genes, and mutations in these two genes confer lifetime risks of breast cancer of up to 80% and ovarian cancer risks of up to 40%. Clinico-pathological studies have identified features that are specific to BRCA1-related breast ca …
This gene encodes a protein which interacts with the N-terminal region of BRCA1. In addition to its ability to bind BRCA1 in vivo and in vitro, it shares homology with the 2 most conserved regions of BRCA1: the N-terminal RING motif and the C-terminal BRCT domain. The RING motif is a cysteine-rich sequence found in a variety of proteins that regulate cell growth, including the products of tumor suppressor genes and dominant protooncogenes. This protein also contains 3 tandem ankyrin repeats. The BARD1/BRCA1 interaction is disrupted by tumorigenic amino acid substitutions in BRCA1, implying that the formation of a stable complex between these proteins may be an essential aspect of BRCA1 tumor suppression. This protein may be the target of oncogenic mutations in breast or ovarian cancer. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

The breast cancer susceptibility gene 1 (BRCA1) has been well established as a tumor suppressor and functions primarily by maintaining genome integrity. Genome stability is compromised when cells are exposed to oxidative stress. Increasing evidence suggests that BRCA1 regulates oxidative stress and this may be another mechanism in preventing carcinogenesis in normal cells. Oxidative stress caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS) is implicated in carcinogenesis and is used strategically to treat human cancer. Thus, it is essential to understand the function of BRCA1 in oxidative stress regulation. In this review, we briefly summarize BRCA1s many binding partners and mechanisms, and discuss data supporting the function of BRCA1 in oxidative stress regulation. Finally, we consider its significance in prevention and/or treatment of BRCA1-related cancers.

A womans lifetime chance of developing breast and/or ovarian cancer is greatly increased if she inherits an altered BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene. Women with an inherited alteration in one of these genes have an increased risk of developing these cancers at a young age (before menopause), and often have multiple close family members with the disease. These women may also have an increased chance of developing colon cancer. Men with an altered BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene also have an increased risk of breast cancer (primarily if the alteration is in BRCA2), and possibly prostate cancer. Alterations in the BRCA2 gene have also been associated with an increased risk of lymphoma, melanoma, and cancers of the pancreas, gallbladder, bile duct, and stomach in some men and women.. According to estimates of lifetime risk, about 13.2 percent (132 out of 1,000 individuals) of women in the general population will develop breast cancer, compared with estimates of 36 to 85 percent (360-850 out of 1,000) of women with an ...
LOH of three intragenic BRCA1 SNPs (2201C/T, 2430T/C, and 2731C/T) that flank the mutation site was confirmed in both the primary and recurrent tumors ( Fig. 3A and B, and data not shown), indicating that contamination by nontumor cells was negligible and that both the primary and recurrent tumors had lost one BRCA1 allele. Intriguingly, in the primary tumor, both wild-type BRCA1 sequence and BRCA1 sequence with 2594delC were detected ( Fig. 3A and B). Careful laser microdissection of a separate second sample of this tumor revealed the same result. The presence of both wild-type BRCA1 sequence and mutant sequence on one allele in the primary tumor suggests that genetic reversion (back mutation to wild-type) occurred on one copy of the mutant allele. We speculate that the presence of the genetically reverted wild-type allele in the primary tumor contributed to the unusual initial platinum resistance of this tumor. The selective pressure for the genetically reverted tumor cells in the primary ...

N2 - Increasing evidence supports the benefit of identifying BRCA1 and BRCA2 germline mutations in early breast cancer. Selection of patients for genetic testing is based on defined criteria taking individual and family history related factors into account. It is important to make a distinction between efficacy and effectiveness of BRCA testing criteria. Efficacy can be defined as the performance under ideal circumstances, whereas effectiveness refers to its real life performance. To allow for an unbiased and detailed evaluation of efficacy and effectiveness of the Swedish BRCA testing criteria, we retrospectively analyzed a prospectively collected cohort of 273 breast ...

N2 - Objective: To evaluate the risk of endometrial cancer in women who carry a deleterious mutation in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes. Patients and methods: Women known to carry a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation, aged 45 to 70, were identified from an international registry and were followed prospectively. A total of 857 women completed a baseline questionnaire and one or more follow-up questionnaires. Study subjects were followed until diagnosis of endometrial cancer, ovarian cancer, death or the date of completion of the last questionnaire. The expected number of endometrial cancers was calculated using age and country-specific incidence rates. Results: After an average ...
Title:BRCA1 as Target for Breast Cancer Prevention and Therapy. VOLUME: 15 ISSUE: 1. Author(s):Alberto P.G. Romagnolo, Donato F. Romagnolo and Ornella I. Selmin. Affiliation:University of Arizona Cancer Center, 1515 N. Campbell, Room 3999A, Tucson, AZ 85724, USA.. Keywords:Breast Cancer, BRCA1, diet, gene regulation, prevention, therapy.. Abstract:The Breast Cancer 1 protein (BRCA1) is a tumor suppressor involved in basic cellular functions necessary for cell replication and DNA synthesis, but reduced expression of BRCA1, due to mutations or epigenetic inactivation, leads to impaired mammary gland differentiation and increased risk of breast cancer development. Although BRCA1 acts as a tumor suppressor and is present in all cells, where it is essential for the maintenance of the genome integrity, it is still not clear why mutations in the BRCA1 gene predispose to breast and ovarian, but not to other types of cancer. In the first part of this review, we briefly discuss the function and regulation ...
If a parent is determined to have a germline RB1 cancer-predisposing mutation either by positive family history, by an eye examination that reveals a retinoblastoma-associated eye lesion, or by molecular genetic testing that reveals the presence of a cancer-predisposing RB1 mutation, the risk to each sib of the index case is 50% (or lower if the carrier parent is a mutational mosaic) of inheriting the cancer-predisposing RB1 mutation. Given the approximately 99% penetrance of most RB1 cancer-predisposing mutations, the actual risk for retinoblastoma in these individuals is about 50% (or lower if the carrier parent is a mutational mosaic). (Note: In rare families with familial-low penetrance retinoblastoma, the risk of tumor development is less than 40 ...
The BRCA2 and MRE11 proteins participate in the repair of double-strand DNA breaks by homologous recombination. Germline BRCA2 mutations predispose to ovarian, breast and pancreatic cancer, while a germline MRE11 mutation is associated with an ataxia telangiectasia-like disorder. Somatic mutations of BRCA2 are rare in typical sporadic cancers. In tumors having microsatellite instability (MSI), somatic truncating mutations in a poly [A] tract of BRCA2 are reported on occasion. We analyzed gastrointestinal MSI cancers by whole gene BRCA2 sequencing, finding heterozygous truncating mutations in seven (47%) of 15 patients. There was no cellular functional defect in RAD51 focus-formation in three heterozygously mutated lines studied, although other potential functions of the BRCA2 protein could still be affected. A prior report of mutations in primary MSI tumors affecting the IVS5-(5-15) poly [T] tract of the MRE11 gene was confirmed and extended by analysis of the genomic sequence and protein expression in
Loss of heterozygosity data from familial tumors suggest that BRCA1, a gene that confers susceptibility to ovarian and early-onset breast cancer, encodes a tumor suppressor. The BRCA1 region is also subject to allelic loss in sporadic breast and ovarian cancers, an indication that BRCA1 mutations may occur somatically in these tumors. The BRCA1 coding region was examined for mutations in primary breast and ovarian tumors that show allele loss at the BRCA1 locus. Mutations were detected in 3 of 32 breast and 1 of 12 ovarian carcinomas; all four mutations were germline alterations and occurred in early-onset cancers. These results suggest that mutation of BRCA1 may not be critical in the development of the majority of breast and ovarian cancers that arise in the absence of a mutant germline allele ...

Breast cancer 1, early onset (BRCA1) expression is often reduced in sporadic breast tumors, even in the absence of BRCA1 genetic modifications, but the molecular basis for this is unknown. In this study, we identified homeobox A9 (HOXA9) as a gene frequently downregulated in human breast cancers and tumor cell lines and noted that reduced HOXA9 transcript levels associated with tumor aggression, metastasis, and patient mortality. Experiments revealed that loss of HOXA9 promoted mammary epithelial cell growth and survival and perturbed tissue morphogenesis. Restoring HOXA9 expression repressed growth and survival and inhibited the malignant phenotype of breast cancer cells in culture and in a xenograft mouse model. Molecular studies showed that HOXA9 restricted breast tumor behavior by directly modulating the expression of BRCA1. Indeed, ectopic expression of wild-type BRCA1 phenocopied the tumor suppressor function of HOXA9, and reducing BRCA1 levels or function inhibited the antitumor activity ...

Differentiated mammary epithelium shows apicobasal polarity, and loss of tissue organization is an early hallmark of breast carcinogenesis. In BRCA1 mutation carriers, accumulation of stem and progenitor cells in normal breast tissue and increased risk of developing tumors of basal-like type suggest that BRCA1 regulates stem/progenitor cell proliferation and differentiation. However, the function of BRCA1 in this process and its link to carcinogenesis remain unknown. Here we depict a molecular mechanism involving BRCA1 and RHAMM that regulates apicobasal polarity and, when perturbed, may increase risk of breast cancer. Starting from complementary genetic analyses across families and populations, we identified common genetic variation at the low-penetrance susceptibility HMMR locus (encoding for RHAMM) that modifies breast cancer risk among BRCA1, but probably not BRCA2, mutation carriers: n = 7,584, weighted hazard ratio ((w)HR) = 1.09 (95% CI 1.02-1.16), p(trend) = 0.017; and n = 3,965, (w)HR = 1.04

N2 - BRCA1 encodes a tumor suppressor gene that is mutated in the germ line of women with a genetic predisposition to breast and ovarian cancer. BRCA1 has been implicated in a number of important cellular functions including DNA damage repair, transcriptional regulation, cell cycle control, and ubiquitination. Using an Affymetrix U95A microarray, IRF-7 was identified as a BRCA1 transcriptional target and was also shown to be synergistically up-regulated by BRCA1 specifically in the presence of IFN-gamma, coincident with the synergistic induction of apoptosis. We show that BRCA1, signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT)-1, and STAT2 are all required for the induction of IRF-7 following stimulation with ...
Environmental and genetic factors exert important influences on lifespan and neoplastic transformation. We have previously shown that spontaneous tumors form frequently in mice homozygous for a full-length |i|Brca1|/i| deletion. In general, mutations of BRCA1 are closely associated with induction of breast and ovarian cancers but are also known to contribute to the incidence of other cancers at a low frequency. Female |i|Brca1|/i|-mutant mice (|i|Brca1|sup|co/co|/sup|MMTV-cre|/i|) were generated by crossing |i|Brca1|/i| conditional knockout mice and |i|MMTV-cre|/i| mice, and the occurrence of lacrimal gland abnormalities and tumors was followed until mice reached 18 months of age. Lacrimal gland tumors, which occur at a very low frequency in the human population (1 per 1,000,000 per year), were detected in 7 cases of |i|Brca1|sup|co/co|/sup|MMTV-cre|/i| mice (2.75%) older than 9 months of age. None of seven mice exhibited any abnormality in the mammary gland including neoplasia, suggesting
We have characterized expression of the familial breast and ovarian cancer gene, BRCA1, in cases of non-hereditary (sporadic) breast cancer and analyzed the effect of antisense inhibition of BRCA1 on the proliferative rate of mammary epithelial cells. BRCA1 mRNA levels are markedly decreased during the transition from carcinoma in situ to invasive cancer. Experimental inhibition of BRCA1 expression with antisense oligonucleotides produced accelerated growth of normal and malignant mammary cells, but had no effect on non-mammary epithelial cells. These studies suggest that BRCA1 may normally serve as a negative regulator of mammary epithelial cell growth whose function is compromised in breast cancer either by direct mutation or alterations in gene expression ...
Germline mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 are responsible for a large proportion of hereditary breast and ovarian cancers. Soon after the identification of both genes in the mid-1990s, investigators set out to develop mouse models for the associated disease. Whereas conventional Brca1 and Brca2 mouse mu …
The BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are the two major high-risk breast and/or ovarian cancer susceptibility genes. Monoallelic germline mutations that disrupt their normal gene function significantly increase the risk of developing cancer in carriers. The identification of a causal mutation in a proband allows proposing pre-symptomatic testing for the causal mutation to all at-risk relatives. Currently, a causal mutation, used for genetic counseling, is presented in approximatively 13% of families tested. Variants of unknown biological significance (VUS) are detected in more than 20% of proband tested. For the families of these probands, genetic testing could not be proposed to relatives and the genetic counseling is guided by family history and epidemiological knowledges exclusively.. The French UMD-BRCA1/2 database, accredited by the French National Cancer Institute, collects anonymous results of genetic tests performed by authorized French laboratories since 1995, giving a real-time vision of families ...
Estrogênio é essencial para a modulação da expressão do BRCA1. O gene BRCA1 apresenta na sua região promotora dois sítios de início de transcrição distintos, um localizado no éxon-1A e o outro no éxon-1B. O estrogênio é capaz de recrutar proteínas AP1 e o complexo receptor de estrogênio α /p300 a um sítio AP 1 adjacente ao sítio de início de transcrição do éxon 1B e de recrutar proteínas Sp (Sp1 e Sp4) há regiões próximas do sítio Ap1. Quando ocorre a ligação do estrogênio ao complexo receptor de estrogênio α /p300 há um desencadeamento de eventos de fosforilação que culminam na fosforilação do próprio complexo e de proteínas Sp que modulam a interação proteína-proteína do promotor do gene BRCA1.[16] O AhR (Aromatic hydrocarbon Receptor) é um outro importante receptor nuclear que atua na regulação da expressão de BRCA1 através de ligação direta em sua região promotora ou de forma indireta por intermédio de receptor estrogênio. Foi proposto ...
The tumor suppressor BRCA1 regulates the DNA damage response (DDR) and other processes that remain incompletely defined. Among these, BRCA1 heterodimerizes with BARD1 to ubiquitylate targets via its N-terminal E3 ligase activity. Here, it is demonstrated that BRCA1 promotes oxidative metabolism by degrading Oct1 (POU2F1), a transcription factor with proglycolytic and tumorigenic effects. BRCA1 E3 ubiquitin ligase mutation skews cells toward a glycolytic metabolic profile while elevating Oct1 protein. CRISPR-mediated Oct1 deletion reverts the glycolytic phenotype. RNA sequencing (RNAseq) confirms deregulation of metabolic genes downstream of Oct1. BRCA1 mediates Oct1 ubiquitylation and degradation, and mutation of two ubiquitylated Oct1 lysines insulates the protein against BRCA1-mediated destabilization. Oct1 deletion in MCF-7 breast cancer cells does not perturb growth in standard culture, but inhibits growth in soft agar and xenograft assays. In primary breast cancer clinical specimens, Oct1 ...

The 12 tumors with a hypermethylated BRCA1 promoter were also analyzed for the two BRCA1 founder mutations common in the Ashkenazi Jewish population, BRCA1 185delAG (exon 2) and BRCA1 5382 insC (exon 20), and found to be free of mutation (Table 1) ⇓ . These samples were also analyzed and found to be absent for the BRCA2 6174delT (exon 11) Jewish founder mutation. The lack of a Jewish founder mutation does not, however, rule out the possibility that other BRCA1 mutations are present. The absence of BRCA1 protein staining in 2 of 9 unmethylated OCs suggests that mechanisms other than promoter hypermethylation may also inhibit BRCA1 protein expression.. A relationship between the BRCA and p53 genes has long been suspected, based upon the higher incidence of p53 mutations in tumors with BRCA mutations than in sporadic carcinomas (31, 32, 33) In view of the critical role of p53 in cell cycle regulation, it has been postulated that BRCA1 mutant cells with wild-type p53 are less susceptible to ...
Two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at 6q25.1, near the ESR1 gene, have been implicated in the susceptibility to breast cancer for Asian (rs2046210) and European women (rs9397435). A genome-wide association study in Europeans identified two further breast cancer susceptibility variants: rs11249433 at 1p11.2 and rs999737 in RAD51L1 at 14q24.1. Although previously identified breast cancer susceptibility variants have been shown to be associated with breast cancer risk for BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers, the involvement of these SNPs to breast cancer susceptibility in mutation carriers is currently unknown. To address this, we genotyped these SNPs in BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers from 42 studies from the Consortium of Investigators of Modifiers of BRCA1/2. In the analysis of 14 123 BRCA1 and 8053 BRCA2 mutation carriers of European ancestry, the 6q25.1 SNPs (r(2) = 0.14) were independently associated with the risk of breast cancer for BRCA1 mutation carriers [hazard ratio (HR) = 1.17, 95%
Rapid developments in cancer genetics have exposed a knowledge vacuum about genetic testing for susceptibility to cancer. Our experience in testing for BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation in hereditary breast cancer (HBC) syndrome, with counseling about cancer surveillance and management, inclusive of the option of prophylactic surgery, provides some important information. We provided DNA-based (BRCA1, BRCA2 germ-line mutation) findings on 442 patients from 37 HBC families. The top two reasons for receiving genetic test results are for their children and for their own health surveillance. Of those women who have tested positive for BRCA1 and have been counseled, 40% had already developed breast cancer and 6% had already developed ovarian cancer, while in BRCA2 25% had developed breast cancer and 0% had developed ovarian cancer. Of the unaffected women, prior to counseling 59% from BRCA1 and 46% from BRCA2 said they would consider prophylactic mastectomy if their result was positive; 76% of BRCA1 and 50% of BRCA2
Purpose: Germline mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes confer increased risks for breast cancers. However, the clinical presentation of breast cancer among women who are carriers of the BRCA1 or BRCA2 (BRCA1/2 carriers) mutations is heterogenous. We aimed to identify the effects of the reproductive histories of women with the BRCA1/2 mutations on the clinical presentation of breast cancer. Methods: We retrospectively analyzed clinical data on women with proven BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations who were recruited to the Korean Hereditary Breast Cancer study, from 2007 to 2014. Results: Among the 736 women who were BRCA1/2 mutation carriers, a total of 483 women had breast cancers. Breast cancer diagnosis occurred at significantly younger ages in women who experienced menarche at ≤ 14 years of age, compared to those who experienced menarche at , 14 years of age (37.38±7.60 and 43.30±10.11, respectively, p, 0.001). Additionally, the number of full-term pregnancies was significantly associated with ...
BACKGROUND: Germline mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are associated with increased risks of breast and ovarian cancers. Although several common variants have been associated with breast cancer susceptibility in mutation carriers, none have been associated with ovarian cancer susceptibility. A genome-wide association study recently identified an association between the rare allele of the single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs3814113 (ie, the C allele) at 9p22.2 and decreased risk of ovarian cancer for women in the general population. We evaluated the association of this SNP with ovarian cancer risk among BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation carriers by use of data from the Consortium of Investigators of Modifiers of BRCA1/2. METHODS: We genotyped rs3814113 in 10,029 BRCA1 mutation carriers and 5837 BRCA2 mutation carriers. Associations with ovarian and breast cancer were assessed with a retrospective likelihood approach. All statistical tests were two-sided. RESULTS: The minor allele of rs3814113 was
While interplay between BRCA1 and AURKA-RHAMM-TPX2-TUBG1 regulates mammary epithelial polarization, common genetic variation in HMMR (gene product RHAMM) may be associated with risk of breast cancer in BRCA1 mutation carriers. Following on these observations, we further assessed the link between the AURKA-HMMR-TPX2-TUBG1 functional module and risk of breast cancer in BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation carriers. Forty-one single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were genotyped in 15,252 BRCA1 and 8,211 BRCA2 mutation carriers and subsequently analyzed using a retrospective likelihood approach. The association of HMMR rs299290 with breast cancer risk in BRCA1 mutation carriers was confirmed: per-allele hazard ratio (HR) = 1.10, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.04-1.15, p = 1.9 x 10(-4) (false discovery rate (FDR)-adjusted p = 0.043). Variation in CSTF1, located next to AURKA, was also found to be associated with breast cancer risk in BRCA2 mutation carriers: rs2426618 per-allele HR = 1.10, 95% CI 1.03-1.16, p = ...
ABSTRACT: INTRODUCTION: Several common alleles have been shown to be associated with breast and/or ovarian cancer risk for BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers. Recent genome-wide association studies of breast cancer have identified eight additional breast cancer susceptibility loci: rs1011970 (9p21, CDKN2A/B), rs10995190 (ZNF365), rs704010 (ZMIZ1), rs2380205 (10p15), rs614367 (11q13), rs1292011 (12q24), rs10771399 (12p11 near PTHLH) and rs865686 (9q31.2). METHODS: To evaluate whether these single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are associated with breast cancer risk for BRCA1 and BRCA2 carriers, we genotyped these SNPs in 12599 BRCA1 and 7132 BRCA2 mutation carriers and analysed the associations with breast cancer risk within a retrospective likelihood framework. RESULTS: Only SNP rs10771399 near PTHLH was associated with breast cancer risk for BRCA1 mutation carriers (per-allele Hazard Ratio (HR)= 0.87, 95%CI:0.81-0.94, P-trend=3x10^-4). The association was restricted to mutations proven or predicted to
Mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 are responsible for a large proportion of breast-ovarian cancer families. Protein-truncating mutations have been effectively used in the clinical management of familial breast cancer due to their deleterious impact on protein function. However, the majority of missense variants identified throughout the genes continue to pose an obstacle for predictive informative testing due to low frequency and lack of information on how they affect BRCA1/2 function. Phosphorylation of BRCA1 and BRCA2 play an important role in their function as regulators of DNA repair, transcription and cell cycle in response to DNA damage but whether missense variants of uncertain significance (VUS) are able to disrupt this important process is not known. Here we employed a novel approach using NetworKIN which predicts in vivo kinasesubstrate relationship, and evolutionary conservation algorithms SIFT, PolyPhen and Align-GVGD. We evaluated whether 191 BRCA1 and 43 BRCA2 VUS from the Breast Cancer ...
A breast cancer (BRCA) gene test is a blood test to check for specific changes (mutations) in genes that help control normal cell growth. Finding changes in these genes, called BRCA1 and BRCA2, can help determine your chance of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer. A BRCA gene test does not test for cancer itself. This test is only done for people with a strong family history of breast cancer, ovarian cancer and sometimes for those who already have one of these diseases. Genetic counseling before and after a BRCA test is very important to help you understand the benefits, risks, and possible outcomes of the test.. A womans risk of breast and ovarian cancer is higher if she has BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene changes. Breast cancer is extremely rare in men but BRCA2 gene changes have been linked to male breast cancer and possibly prostate, may also be higher. The gene changes can be inherited from either your mothers or fathers side of the family.. Certain people have a higher chance of inheriting ...
This study aimed to determine whether telomere length (TL) is a marker of cancer risk or genetic status amongst two cohorts of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers and controls. The first group was a prospective set of 665 male BRCA1/2 mutation carriers and controls (mean age 53 years), all healthy at time of enrollment and blood donation, 21 of whom have developed prostate cancer whilst on study. The second group consisted of 283 female BRCA1/2 mutation carriers and controls (mean age 48 years), half of whom had been diagnosed with breast cancer prior to enrollment. TL was quantified by qPCR from DNA extracted from peripheral blood lymphocytes. Weighted and unweighted Cox regressions and linear regression analyses were used to assess whether TL was associated with BRCA1/2 mutation status or cancer risk. We found no evidence for association between developing cancer or being a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation carrier and telomere length. It is the first study investigating TL in a cohort of genetically ...
Our study reaffirms that specific BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations found previously to recur in French Canadian breast cancer and breast-ovarian cancer families, also recur in women with ovarian cancer not selected for family history of cancer. This is especially evident with the number of BRCA1:C4446T mutation carriers (n = 15) identified in this study, which has been the most commonly reported mutation identified in this population and this has been attributed to shared ancestry as a consequence of common founders [24,25,27-29,32,33]. This mutation was also the most common mutation found in our previous study of 74 women with serous and endometrioid ovarian cancers screened for specific BRCA1/BRCA2 mutations [36].. Our study also highlights the significance of the BRCA2:E3002K mutation in the French Canadian population. We found five E3002K mutation-positive carriers in the cohort of 439 women with ovarian cancer, which is similar in frequency to the number of carriers of each of the other three ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - BRCA1 and GATA3 corepress FOXC1 to inhibit the pathogenesis of basal-like breast cancers. AU - Tkocz, D.. AU - Crawford, Nyree. AU - Buckley, Niamh E. AU - Berry, F.B.. AU - Kennedy, Richard. AU - Miskelly, Julia. AU - Harkin, Paul. AU - Mullan, Paul. PY - 2011/12/9. Y1 - 2011/12/9. N2 - In this study we describe a novel interaction between the breast/ovarian tumor suppressor gene BRCA1 and the transcription factor GATA3, an interaction, which is important for normal breast differentiation. We show that the BRCA1-GATA3 interaction is important for the repression of genes associated with triple-negative and basal-like breast cancer (BLBCs) including FOXC1, and that GATA3 interacts with a C-terminal region of BRCA1. We demonstrate that FOXC1 is an essential survival factor maintaining the proliferation of BLBCs cell lines. We define the mechanistic basis of this corepression and identify the GATA3-binding site within the FOXC1 distal promoter region. We show that BRCA1 and GATA3 ...
Breast Cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Sri Lankan women. Germline mutations in the susceptibility genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 in hereditary breast/ovarian cancer, though low in prevalence, are highly penetrant and show geographical variations. There have been only a few reports from Asia on mutations in BRCA1/2 genes and none from Sri Lanka. A total of 130 patients with (N = 66) and without (N = 64) a family history of breast cancer, 70 unaffected individuals with a family history of breast cancer and 40 control subjects were analysed for BRCA1 mutations. All but exon 11 were screened by single strand conformation analysis (SSCP) and heteroduplex analysis. PCR products which showed abnormal patterns in SSCP were sequenced. Exon 11 was directly sequenced. Nineteen sequence variants were found in BRCA1 gene. Two novel deleterious frame-shift mutations; c.3086delT/exon11 (in one patient) and c.5404delG/exon21 (in one patient and two of her family members) were identified. A possibly pathogenic
In this work, we have demonstrated that human BRCA2 is capable of binding the meiosis‐specific recombinase DMC1 via two different binding sites. The first is located at the C terminus of BRCA2 and corresponds to the region also bound by RAD51 protein. The second, however, represents the primary DMC1 interaction domain located within the relatively uncharacterised central part of BRCA2, contained within B2‐6. Using yeast two‐hybrid assays, pull‐down experiments, and peptide arrays, we defined this interaction domain to the region corresponding to BRCA22386-2411. Within this region, we showed the critical importance of Phe2406, Pro2408, and Pro2409 located in the conserved motif KVFVPPFK, and for simplicity will refer to this DMC1 interaction domain as the PhePP motif.. The PhePP motif of BRCA2 interacts specifically with DMC1, and not with RAD51. The importance of the region is indicated by its conservation in different mammalian species and in chicken BRCA2. This DMC1 interaction domain, ...
Heterozygous germline mutations in BRCA2 are associated with an increased risk of developing breast and ovarian cancers. BRCA2 is thought to be important for genome stability owing to its involvement in DNA-repair pathways; in addition, previous work has suggested that BRCA2 might regulate cytokinesis, the final step of cell division. Mark Petronczki and colleagues now provide data that disprove this latter hypothesis (p. 1395). Using time-lapse imaging of HeLa cells, the authors show that depletion of BRCA2 abrogates its function in DNA repair but has no effect on cytokinesis. In addition, a diffusion-based assay that precisely discerns the timing of abscission and cell separation shows that BRCA2 does not have a role in these final stages of cytokinesis. Furthermore, DLD1 colon cancer cells in which both BRCA2 alleles are disrupted successfully complete cytokinesis. Finally, the authors show that, in contrast to results from a previous study, BRCA2 does not localise to the spindle midzone or ...
PALB2 (Partner and Localizer of BRCA2) plays a key role in the repair of damaged DNA by localizing BRCA2 and initiating the repair process. The gene has been recognized as a third breast cancer (BC) predisposition gene, together with BRCA1 and BRCA2. The absolute risk for the development of BC for mutation carriers with a familial predisposition, represents 58% at 50 years of age, similar to that of BRCA2. Although germline loss-of-function PALB2 mutations is rare, the mutation spectrum internationally and in South African (SA) is still unknown. Eighty-six SA breast- and/or ovarian cancer (OVC) patients were selected. Patients had to be affected with either breast- and/or OVC, have a positive family history of BC (two or more affected family members, excluding the index), tested negative for pathogenic mutations in BRCA1/2, represent one of the four main SA ethnic groups and had sufficient amounts of good quality DNA stored to complete a comprehensive screen of the entire gene. The complete ...

Ovarian cancer is a deadly disease that kills an estimated 15,000 women annually in the United States. It is estimated that approximately 10% of ovarian cancers are due to familial inheritance. The most commonly mutated genes in familial ovarian cancer are BRCA1 and BRCA2. It has been reported that cells carrying the BRCA1 185delAG mutation undergo an enhanced caspase-3 mediated apoptotic response. Here, we report on the transfection of cDNA coding for the putative truncated protein product of the BRCA1 185delAG mutant gene into BRCA1 wild-type human immortalized ovarian surface epithelial (IOSE) cells and ovarian cancer cells. Cells transfected with the BRCA1 185delAG truncation protein (BRAt) showed increased levels of active caspase 3, increased cleavage of caspase 3 substrates, PARP and DFF45, and decreased XIAP and cIAP1 following staurosporine (STS) treatment. BRAt also reduced Akt phosphorylation and over expression of activated Akt in BRAt cells restored caspase-3 activity to that seen in wild
Women who inherit mutations in the breast cancer susceptibility genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2, are predisposed to the development of breast and ovarian cancer. We used mice with a Brca1 mutation on a BALB/cJ inbred background (BALB/cB1+/- mice) or a Brca2 genetic alteration on the 129/SvEv genetic background (129B2+/- mice) to investigate potential gene-environment interactions between defects in these genes and treatment with the highly estrogenic compound diethylstilbestrol (DES).. Beginning at 3 weeks of age, BALB/cB1+/-, 129B2+/-, and wild-type female mice were fed a control diet or a diet containing 640 ppb DES for 26 weeks. DES treatment caused vaginal epithelial hyperplasia and hyperkeratosis, uterine inflammation, adenomyosis, and fibrosis, as well as oviductal smooth muscle hypertrophy. The severity of the DES response was mouse strain specific. The estrogen-responsive 129/SvEv strain exhibited an extreme response in the reproductive tract, whereas the effect in BALB/cJ and C3H/HeN(MMTV-) mice ...
Mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes profoundly increase the risk of developing breast and/or ovarian cancer among women. To explore the contribution of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations in the development of hereditary breast cancer among Indian women, we carried out mutation analysis of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes in 61 breast or ovarian cancer patients from south India with a positive family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer. Mutation analysis was carried out using conformation-sensitive gel electrophoresis (CSGE) followed by sequencing. Mutations were identified in 17 patients (28.0%); 15 (24.6%) had BRCA1 mutations and two (3.28%) had BRCA2 mutations. While no specific association between BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations with cancer type was seen, mutations were more often seen in families with ovarian cancer. While 40% (4/10) and 30.8% (4/12) of families with ovarian or breast and ovarian cancer had mutations, only 23.1% (9/39) of families with breast cancer carried mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 ...
11 Feb 2016. Rates of genetic testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations have increased among women diagnosed with breast cancer at age 40 or younger, according to an article published online by JAMA Oncology.. Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women younger than 40 in the United States.. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines recommend women diagnosed with breast cancer at 50 or younger undergo genetic testing because carriers of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations are at increased risk for developing early-onset breast cancer.. Assessing a young womens genetic risk after a breast cancer diagnosis can have implications for subsequent treatment decisions.. Ann H. Partridge, M.D., M.P.H., of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, and coauthors described the use of BRCA testing in a group of women diagnosed with breast cancer at 40 or younger and examined how concerns about genetic risk and genetic information affected treatment decisions.. The study included 897 women 40 and ...

The BRCA2 tumor suppressor plays an important role in the repair of DNA damage by homologous recombination, also termed homology-directed repair (HDR). Human BRCA2 is 3,418 aa and is composed of several domains. The central part of the protein contains multiple copies of a motif that binds the Rad51 recombinase (the BRC repeat), and the C terminus contains domains that have structural similarity to domains in the ssDNA-binding protein replication protein A (RPA). To gain insight into the role of BRCA2 in the repair of DNA damage, we fused a single (BRC3, BRC4) or multiple BRC motifs to the large RPA subunit. Expression of any of these protein fusions in Brca2 mutant cells substantially improved HDR while suppressing mutagenic repair. A fusion containing a Rad52 ssDNA-binding domain also was active in HDR. Mutations that reduced ssDNA or Rad51 binding impaired the ability of the fusion proteins to function in HDR. The high level of spontaneous chromosomal aberrations in Brca2 mutant cells was ...
Individuals with mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes have a significantly higher risk of developing breast and ovarian cancers. Families at risk have been seeking genetic testing and counseling based on their mutation carrier status, but the standard method of direct sequencing is labor-intensive, costly, and it only targets a part of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. A group of Canadian scientists has developed a new sequencing approach to provide a more effective method of BRCA1/2 mutational analysis.
Obesity is associated with increased breast cancer (BrCA) incidence. an important cell type of the breast microenvironment we examined the impact of adipocyte ERα deletion on cancer cell behavior. Conditioned medium from ERα-null adipocytes and medium containing pure Lcn2 increased proliferation and migration of a subset of BrCA cells in culture. The proliferative and promigratory effects of ERα-deficient adipocyte-conditioned medium on BrCA cells was reversed by deletion. BrCA cell responsiveness to exogenous Lcn2 was heightened in cell types where endogenous expression was minimal but components of the Lcn2 signaling pathway were enriched and 3-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase (expression was positively associated with adiposity and circulating Lcn2 levels. Collectively these data suggest that reduction of ERα expression in adipose tissue promotes adiposity and is linked P005672 HCl with the progression and severity of BrCA via increased adipocyte-specific Lcn2 production and enhanced tumor ...

AU - Schildkraut, Joellen. AU - Winer, Eric. PY - 1997/2/5. Y1 - 1997/2/5. N2 - Background: Heritable mutations of the breast cancer gene BRCA1 are rare, occurring in fewer than 1% of women in the general population, and therefore account for a small proportion of cases of breast and ovarian cancers. Nevertheless, the presence of such mutations is highly predictive of the development of these cancers. Purpose: We developed and applied a mathematic model for calculating the probability that a woman with a family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer carries a mutation of BRCA1. Methods and Results: As a basis for the model, we use Mendelian genetics and apply Bayes theorem to information on the family history of these diseases. Of importance are the exact relationships of all family members, including both ...
Screening for your G5193A BRCA1 and 999del5 BRCA2 mutations confirmed the 999del5 mutation from the 11 BRCA2 suggestive pairs in addition three pairs significantly less indicative of linkage, plus the G5193A BRCA1 mutation in a single pair. When regarded mutation carriers are faraway from the group, no indication of further more linkage to BRCA1 or BRCA2 is noticed. The effects of our research propose that a significant proportion of familial breast cancer in Iceland is the results of the 999del5 BRCA2 mutation, and it really is unlikely that BRCA1 and BRCA2 germline mutations aside from 999del5 and G5193A play a big position in hereditary breast most cancers in Iceland. Additionally it might be concluded that many family members with BRCA1 or BRCA2 linkage are easily recognized by finding out LOH across the site info faulty gene in as couple of as two impacted relatives.

Population-based genome wide association studies have identified a locus at 9p22.2 associated with ovarian cancer risk, which also modifies ovarian cancer risk in BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers. We conducted fine-scale mapping at 9p22.2 to identify potential causal variants in BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers. Genotype data were available for 15,252 (2,462 ovarian cancer cases) BRCA1 and 8,211 (631 ovarian cancer cases) BRCA2 mutation carriers. Following genotype imputation, ovarian cancer associations were assessed for 4,873 and 5,020 SNPs in BRCA1 and BRCA 2 mutation carriers respectively, within a retrospective cohort analytical framework. In BRCA1 mutation carriers one set of eight correlated candidate causal variants for ovarian cancer risk modification was identified (top SNP rs10124837, HR: 0.73, 95%CI: 0.68 to 0.79, p-value 2× 10−16). These variants were located up to 20 kb upstream of BNC2. In BRCA2 mutation carriers one region, up to 45 kb upstream of BNC2, and containing 100 ...

CD54-NOTCH1 Axis Controls Tumor Initiation and Cancer Stem Cell Functions in Human Prostate Cancer Investigators implemented a novel chemoresistant prostate cancer patient-derived xenograft model in NOD/SCID mice and identified CD54 as a candidate gene among the most highly enriched gene expression profiles in prostate tumors exposed to chronic cisplatin administration. [Theranostics] Full Article RAD51 Mediates Resistance of Cancer Stem Cells to PARP Inhibition in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer PARP inhibitors have shown promising results in early studies for treatment of breast cancer susceptibility gene (BRCA)-deficient breast cancers; however, resistance ultimately develops. The authors demonstrated that the cancer stem cells in BRCA1-mutant triple-negative breast cancers were resistant to PARP inhibition, and that these cells had both elevated RAD51 protein levels and activity.

In this study, we applied a TaqMan-based quantitative AI assay to compare the levels of AI in BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes between patients with familial ovarian cancer and cancer-free relative controls. The AI ratios of BRCA1 in familial ovarian cancer cases were significantly higher than those from cancer-free relative controls (P = 0.0007). In contrast, the AI ratios of BRCA2 were not significantly different between familial ovarian cancer cases and cancer-free controls (P = 0.328). The distribution of underexpressed alleles between cancer-free controls and familial cases was significantly different for BRCA1 gene expression but not for BRCA2 gene expression (P , 0.014 for BRCA1 and P = 0.66 for BRCA2). Using a cutoff point of BRCA1 AI (0.458) obtained from ROC analysis, higher levels of AI in BRCA1 were associated with a 4.22-fold increased risk of familial ovarian cancer. Furthermore, we have observed a significant trend of decreasing age at cancer diagnosis with increasing levels of AI in BRCA1 ...
It was proposed by Henderson and colleagues in 1985 that breast cancer incidence rates closely parallel the lifetime number of ovulatory cycles, in support of the hypothesis that endogenous estrogen and progesterone are important etiologic factors (2). We show here that among BRCA mutation carriers, the cumulative number of ovulatory cycles is not associated with risk. The mean number of ovulatory cycles for the controls was in fact greater (248) than it was for the cases (243), opposite to what we would expect if risk was positively associated with the number of cycles. The negative association between ovulatory cycles achieved and breast cancer risk is a reflection of the declining risk with age. Nevertheless, a number of reproductive factors are important in BRCA1 carriers including age at menarche, breastfeeding, and oophorectomy, whereas only oophorectomy was protective in BRCA2 carriers.. The diminution of risk associated with a delay of menarche by 1 year is approximately 9% and is ...
OBJECTIVE Women who are carriers of BRCA gene mutations have an elevated lifetime risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer. Although a number of risk-reducing options are currently available to mutation carriers, uncertainty exists in terms of their efficacy. A systematic review of the literature was conducted to describe the utilization of screening and preventive surgery among unaffected mutation carriers in the face of uncertainty. METHODS MEDLINE, PubMed, and CANCERLIT, English-only computerized literature searches were done to identify articles pertaining to decisions made by unaffected BRCA mutation carriers to reduce risk of breast and ovarian cancer. Studies were required to include information on choices taken by at-risk women following disclosure of a positive BRCA test. RESULTS Only seven studies (5 American and 2 Dutch studies) were identified. The proportion of mutation carriers who chose preventive surgery over screening varied widely across the studies, ranging from 0% to 54% for
Breast cancer is the most prevalent cancer among women, and approximately 10% of all breast cancers are hereditary. The two best known breast cancer susceptibility genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2, were identified 20 years ago, but mutations in these genes account for ~40% of inherited breast cancers. Since then, other genes including ATM, BARD1, BLM, BRIP1, CHEK2, NBS1, PALB2, PTEN, RINT1, TP53 and XRCC2 have been proposed as candidate breast cancer susceptibility genes and together account for another ~10% of hereditary breast cancer families. However, the genes responsible for the other 50% of hereditary cases are yet to be identified.. Certain populations like the French Canadian population of Quebec are notable for the presence of founder mutations that are the result of their presence in a small number of original settlers. Our team has contributed significantly to the identification, characterization and clinical application of founder mutations in BRCA1, BRCA2 and, most recently, PALB2. ...
Background: Inherited pathogenic variants in BRCA1 and BRCA2 are the most common causes of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer (HBOC). The risk of developing breast cancer by age 80 in women carrying a BRCA1 pathogenic variant is 72%. The lifetime risk varies between families and even within affected individuals of the same family. The cause of this variability is largely unknown, but it is hypothesized that additional genetic factors contribute to differences in age at onset (AAO). Here we investigated whether truncating and rare missense variants in genes of different DNA-repair pathways contribute to this phenomenon. Methods: We used extreme phenotype sampling to recruit 133 BRCA1-positive patients with either early breast cancer onset, below 35 (early AAO cohort) or cancer-free by age 60 (controls). Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) was used to screen for variants in 311 genes involved in different DNA-repair pathways. Results: Patients with an early AAO (73 women) had developed breast ...
Key clinical point: Central nervous system involvement is common among patients with germline BRCA1/BRCA2 mutations who have newly recurrent breast cancer. Major finding: Prevalence of CNS disease was 25% in noncarriers, but 53% in BRCA1 mutation carriers (multivariate odds ratio, 2.11; P = .18) and 50% in BRCA2 mutation carriers (multivariate odds ratio, 3.33; P less than .006).

Introduction: Previous studies have demonstrated that common breast cancer susceptibility alleles are differentially associated with breast cancer risk for BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 mutation carriers. It is currently unknown how these alleles are associated with different breast cancer subtypes in BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers defined by estrogen (ER) or progesterone receptor (PR) status of the tumour.Methods: We used genotype data on up to 11,421 BRCA1 and 7,080 BRCA2 carriers, of whom 4,310 had been affected with breast cancer and had information on either ER or PR status of the tumour, to assess the associations of 12 loci with breast cancer tumour characteristics. Associations were evaluated using a retrospective cohort approach.Results: The results suggested stronger associations with ER-positive breast cancer than ER-negative for 11 loci in both BRCA1 and BRCA2 carriers. Among BRCA1 carriers, single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs2981582 (FGFR2) exhibited the biggest difference based on ER ...

The BRCA gene test analyses DNA to look for harmful mutations in two breast cancer genes (BRCA1 or BRCA2). This test is performed as a routine blood test. The test should only be performed on patients who have specific types of breast cancers or have a family history suggesting the possibility of having an inherited mutation.
Research overview. BRCA1/BRCA2 mutations in breast and ovarian cancer. Germline mutations of BRCA1/BRCA2 genes occur in up to 5% of breast cancer patients and 15% of ovarian cancers. These genes are major players in the repair of DNA double strand breaks. BRCA carriers have therefore increased sensitivity to DNA-damaging agents, such as platinum or PARP inhibitors. We recently showed a correlation between the BRCA2 genotype and response to platinum in ovarian cancer patients. Only BRCA2 carriers, harboring mutations located in the RAD51-binding domain (RAD51-BD), have prolonged treatment-free intervals and longer survival, whereas the other BRCA2 carriers did not show a survival benefit. We are currently investigating the impact of BRCA mutations on toxicity and response to chemotherapy in breast cancer patients.. Pathogenesis of high grade serous ovarian carcinoma. ...
The stock of Martin Midstream Partners L.P. (NASDAQ: MMLP ) has Hold rating given on Thursday, September 14 by Stifel Nicolaus. Investors look at the Volatility 12m to determine if a company has a low volatility percentage or not over the course of a year. Having a faulty BRCA gene - either BRCA1 or BRCA2 - is known to increase a womans risk of breast cancer.. When those results were published last June, Mark Robson, an oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center who led the multisite trial, described the treatment as an early chapter in a womans journey dealing with breast cancer - one that can delay the start of chemotherapy and help preserve her quality of life.. Some women have previously chose to take preventative measures, such as pre-emptive mastectomies, when they discover they have faulty genes.. Clovis PARP inhibitor Rubraca (rucaparib) was approved in the U.S.in late 2016 for advanced ovarian cancer patients who have received at least two prior lines of chemo and whose ...
Genetic susceptibility factors are associated with most types of cancer, but few of these genes have been identified. We have generated mutant mouse strains with engineered modifications of genes shown to be strongly linked to cancer. We have also adopted comparison genomic hybridization array screening as well as a Drosophila genetic modifier screening methods to identify novel genes linked to cancer. One of our areas of interest is DNA repair. We studied mutant mice lacking MSH2, a component of the DNA mismatch repair machinery. MSH2-deficient mice spontaneously develop tumours early in life, making them a useful model for the study of tumorigenesis, carcinogens and anti-cancer agents. Studies of mice lacking the breast cancer susceptibility genes Brca1 or Brca2 suggest that these proteins have roles in pathways controlling DNA damage repair and the maintenance of genome stability. One of the most important tumour suppressor genes (TSG) for human cancer is p53, a multi- functional protein that ...
Researchers at Moffitt Cancer Center and colleagues in Canada have published study results focused on black women younger than 50, a population disproportionately afflicted with and dying from early-onset breast cancer compared to their white counterparts. The research published in The Breast Journal.. Early-onset breast cancer has been associated with mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. These breast cancer-predisposing genes were discovered almost 20 years ago and confer a lifetime risk of breast cancer of 60% to 70%, as well as a much higher risk of a second primary breast cancer compared to noncarriers. The researchers suggest that genetic counseling and BRCA testing can reduce cancer incidence and mortality in those identified with mutations.. We need to better understand why black women develop early-onset, aggressive disease, said study coauthor Tuya Pal, MD, associate member of the Cancer Epidemiology Program at Moffitt.

Mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are strongly associated with the development of breast or ovarian cancer: Carriers face a five- to 20-fold increased risk of developing these cancers and are usually subject to intensive screening and risk-reduction strategies. Female relatives who are tested and found not to carry the family-specific mutation have historically been advised that their cancer risks are the same as those of other relatives of breast cancer patients (that is, slightly higher than women in the general population).. The field was shaken up when a 2007 Journal of Medical Genetics paper showed that women who tested negative for a familial BRCA mutation had a two- to five-fold increased risk of developing breast cancer. Several other studies found a two-fold risk for non-carriers who had a relative with the mutation, prompting some to wonder whether ongoing breast cancer surveillance should be recommended for these relatives.. Our clinic received many calls about it - it was ...
