The roles of BRCA1 and BRCA2 and associated proteins in the maintenance of genomic stability

  title={The roles of BRCA1 and BRCA2 and associated proteins in the maintenance of genomic stability},
  author={Katr{\'i}n Gudmundsd{\'o}ttir and Alan Ashworth},
The BRCA1 and BRCA2 proteins are important in maintaining genomic stability by promoting efficient and precise repair of double-strand breaks. The main role of BRCA2 appears to involve regulating the function of RAD51 in the repair by homologous recombination. BRCA1 has a broader role upstream of BRCA2, participating in various cellular processes in response to DNA damage. The DNA repair defect associated with mutations in BRCA1 or BRCA2 could be exploited to develop new targeted therapeutic… CONTINUE READING
