Genetic susceptibility to breast cancer is influenced by high- and low-penetrance genes. The low-penetrance genes contributing to increased and decreased risk likely exist at appreciable frequencies in the human population. To identify high-frequency, low-penetrance modifier genes, we are using a rat genetic model. Eight quantitative trait loci, named(More)
It has previously been shown that the Copenhagen (COP) rat contains several genetic loci that contribute to its mammary tumor-resistant phenotype after 7,12-dimethylbenz(a)anthracene (DMBA) administration. One of these loci, mammary carcinoma susceptibility 1 (Mcs1), is located on the centromeric end of chromosome 2 and appears to act in a semidominant(More)
