Germline mutations in the BRCA1 (MIM 113705) and BRCA2 (MIM 600185) genes have been identified for breast and ovarian cancer families of diverse ethnic backgrounds. To date, there have been no reports of Native North American families with mutations in BRCA1 or BRCA2. Here we report two families of aboriginal descent both with the same BRCA1 alterations (1510insG, 1506A>G). The families represent two aboriginal Canadian tribes (Cree and Ojibwe), although a common ancestral origin is likely… 
Frequency of Mutations in Brca1 and Brca2 Genes in Women with Breast Cancer in Córdoba, Argentina
TLDR
This is the first study on the population of the province of Cordoba, Argentina to determine the prevalence of the mutation in 24 women from Cordoba with breast / ovarian cancer and with at least two relatives with breast cancer.
BRCA1 And BRCA2 analysis of Argentinean breast/ovarian cancer patients selected for age and family history highlights a role for novel mutations of putative south-American origin
TLDR
This study, the first conducted in Argentinean patients, highlights a significant impact of novel BRCA1/2 mutations and genetic variants, which may be regarded as putatively South American, and confirms the important role of founder BRC a1 and BRCa2 mutations in Argentineaan Ashkenazi Jews.
BRCA1 status in Pakistani breast cancer patients with moderate family history.
TLDR
Several BRCA1 mutations were observed in Pakistani breast cancer patients withmoderate family history and mutation-based genetic counselling for patients with moderate family history can facilitate management, if one first or second degree relative or early onset disease is apparent.
Novel germline mutations in the adenomatous polyposis coli gene in Polish families with familial adenomatous polyposis
TLDR
A spectrum of mutations of the APC gene in Polish patients with FAP is reported, which shows the presence of numerous polyps that line the mucosa of the large intestine and rectum and the occurrence of less common structural deformations in the teeth.
Conservation of the BRCA1 gene
TLDR
The project attempted to associate the structural and functional consequences of individual mutations in Human BRCA1 to other organisms, suggesting a strong correlation between human geographic isolation and mutation exclusivity.
BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations among familial breast cancer patients from Costa Rica
TLDR
BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations among familial breast cancer patients from Costa Rica are studied.
Анамнестические особенности BRCA1-ассоциированного рака молочной железы у женщин молодого возраста
TLDR
It is ascertained that the mean age in young age patients with positive BRCA1 status is 31.8 ± 3.3 years, and the disease course in young BRCa1-positive patients is characterized by a 30 % risk of contralateral breast cancer during the first 5 years of observation.
Hereditary genes and SNPs associated with breast cancer.
TLDR
The hereditary genes of breast cancer and SNPs associated with increasing the risk of Breast cancer that were recently were reported from candidate gene, meta-analysis and GWAS studies are reviewed.
Homologous Recombination and Its Role in Carcinogenesis
TLDR
Homologous recombination is discussed as another mechanism that can result in a loss of heterozygosity or genetic rearrangements in carcinogenesis, and patients, whose cells display an increased frequency of recombination, also have an elevated frequency of cancer, further supporting the link between recombination and carcinogenesis.
Role of homologous recombination in carcinogenesis.
TLDR
Patients, whose cells display an increased frequency of recombination, also have an elevated frequency of cancer, further supporting the link between recombination and carcinogenesis.
