Aberrant recombination and repair during immunoglobulin class switching in BRCA1-deficient human B cells.
Stockholm, Sweden. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 17 Mar 2015
Furthermore, increased use of long microhomologies was found at recombination junctions derived from E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase RNF168-deficient, Fanconi anemia group J protein (FACJ, BRIP1)-deficient, or DNA endonuclease RBBP8 (CtIP)-compromised cells, whereas an increased frequency of S-region inversions was observed in breast cancer type 2 susceptibility protein (BRCA2)-deficient cells.
Genetics of Breast Cancer: A Topic in Evolution.
Seattle, United States. In Ann Oncol, 20 Feb 2015
An additional 2-3% of cases are due to a mutation in a rare, moderate-penetrance gene (e.g., CHEK2, BRIP1, ATM, and PALB2), each associated with a two-fold increase in risk.
Genetic and epigenetic control of RKIP transcription.
Kuwait, Kuwait. In Crit Rev Oncog, 2013
We also review the genetic and epigenetic modulation of RKIP transcription through EZH2, a component of the polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2) and sequence specific transcription factors (TFs) BACH1 and Snail.
Mutations in BRIP1 confer high risk of ovarian cancer.
Reykjavík, Iceland. In Nat Genet, 2011
We discovered a rare (0.41% allelic frequency) frameshift mutation, c.2040_2041insTT, in the BRIP1 (FANCJ) gene that confers an increase in ovarian cancer risk (odds ratio (OR) = 8.13, P = 2.8 × 10(-14)).
Structure of the DNA repair helicase XPD.
Saint Andrews, United Kingdom. In Cell, 2008
The XPD helicase (Rad3 in Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is a component of transcription factor IIH (TFIIH), which functions in transcription initiation and Nucleotide Excision Repair in eukaryotes, catalyzing DNA duplex opening localized to the transcription start site or site of DNA damage, respectively.
