BACKGROUND Mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are responsible for only a part of hereditary breast cancer (HBC). The origins of "non-BRCA" HBC in families may be attributed in part to rare mutations in genes conferring moderate risk, such as CHEK2, which encodes for an upstream regulator of BRCA1. Previous studies have demonstrated an association(More)
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are considered as major endotoxin-signaling receptor and as crucial sensors of innate immunity. TLRs recognize pathogen-associated molecular patterns; induce effectors genes involving inflammatory cytokines and therefore initiation of adaptative immune responses against pathogens. Recently, it has been shown that TLRs are involved(More)
