Sept. 11, 2018. New publication about promoter gene variants in BRCA1 and BRCA2 that alter gene expression

In a collaboration with the ENIGMA Consortium members, we have used bioinformatic and functional genomic analysis to identify gene variants that affect the expression of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. The article is:

Burke LJ, Sevcik J, Gambino G1, Tudini E, Mucaki EJ, Shirley BC, Whiley P, Parsons M, DeLeeneer K, Gutiérrez-Enríquez S, Pena MS, Caputo S, Santana dos Santos E, Soukupova J, Janatova M,  Zemankova P, Lhotova K, Stolarova L, Borecka M, ENIGMA consortium, Edwards S, Blok R, Hansen TvO, Diez O, Vega A, Claes K, Rouleau E, , Radice P, Peterlongo P, Rogan PK, Caligo M, Spurdle AB and Brown MA. BRCA1 and BRCA2 5’ non-coding region variants identified in breast cancer patients alter promoter activity and protein binding, Human Mutation.
