Characterization of BRCA1
and BRCA2 mutations in a large United States sample.
In some cases genetic mutations in BRCA1
and BRCA2 are inherited, which may generate uncontrolled proliferation of a single cell and contribute to the development of cancer (7).
However, our study shows that there are many more people who have cancers that look like they have the same signatures and same weakness as patients with faulty BRCA1
and BRCA2 genes.
Of these, about 10-15 percent are estimated to be affected by BRCA1
and BRCA2 genetic mutations.
Rassi (2009) studied that the most common genes having mutations in breast cancers were BRCA1
and BRCA2 as both genes had multiple exons.
Finalmente, y debido a la alta supervivencia de las mujeres con cancer cuando son tratados en estadios tempranos de la enfermedad, poder identificar aquellas que posean un alto riesgo de desarrollar la enfermedad, basado en la expresion de BRCA1
, tiene una implicacion valiosa, ya que permite incrementar la expectativa y calidad de la vida de las afectadas.
All but one of the serous endometrial cancers occurred in women with the BRCA1
The patients included four women positive for BRCA1
mutations, and one positive for BRCA2.

This study may explain why some cancer predisposing mutations are found in the front part of the BRCA1
gene - the part that allows it to function as a ubiquitin ligase.
tells cells to make a protein that helps repair damage to DNA.
Low levels of the BRCA1
protein in brain cells may be associated with dementia caused by Alzheimer's disease, according to new evidence from the brains of deceased patients with Alzheimer's disease or mild cognitive impairment, as well as experimental mouse models of the disease.
and COX-2 abnormal gene expression have been seen in a large number of cancers previously.
El sindrome de cancer hereditario de mama y ovario (SCHMO) es una condicion que aumenta la probabilidad de desarrollar cancer de mama, ovario y de otros tipos de cancer como pancreas y prostata, debido a la presencia de mutaciones germinales en los genes de susceptibilidad BRCA1
o BRCA2 localizados en el cromosoma 17q21 (1) y 13q12-q13 (2) respectivamente (3-6).
and BRCA2 are the major genes associated with hereditary breast cancer susceptibility [3, 4].
