Abstract

Inheritance of a deleterious mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2 confers a high lifetime risk of developing breast cancer. Variation in penetrance between individuals suggests that factors other than the gene mutation itself may influence the risk of cancer in susceptible women. Several risk fac...read more

DNA Repair

DNA repair is critical to prevent detrimental mutations and maintain genomic stability that can otherwise lead to disease and disability. There are a number of different mechanisms of repair including base excision repair, direct repair, nucleotide excision repair and double-strand break repair. Discover the latest research on DNA repair here.

Breast Cancer: BRCA1 & BRCA2

Mutations involving BRCA1, found on chromosome 17, and BRCA2, found on chromosome 13, increase the risk for specific cancers, such as breast cancer. Discover the last research on breast cancer BRCA1 and BRCA2 here.

Hereditary Cancer Syndromes

Hereditary cancer syndromes comprise 5% of all cancers and have an increased risk of early onset and of multiple or bilateral malignancies. Here is the latest research on hereditary cancer syndromes.

Hormone-Related Cancers

This feed focuses on hormone-related cancers including cancer of the breast, endometrium, ovary, prostate, testis, thyroid, and bone, all of which share unique mechanisms of carcinogenesis. Here is the latest research.

DNA Damage

Cells are subjected to several DNA damaging events on a daily basis which results in the induction of DNA damage signaling and repair cascades to ensure genomic stability. Here is the latest research pertaining to DNA damage.

Hereditary Breast & Ovarian Cancer

Hereditary breast and ovarian cancer due to mutations in the brca1 and brca2 genes is the most common cause of hereditary forms of both breast and ovarian cancer. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to these cancers.
