Mutations in these tumor suppressor genes have been shown to account for a high proportion of the inherited type of breast cancer.1,2 Work is still continuing for elucidation of the mutation spectrum of BRCA1 and BRCA2 in specific populations3 and for identification of their potential function.4 A classical example… CONTINUE READING
