    • Associations of common breast cancer susceptibility alleles with risk of breast cancer subtypes in BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers 

      Kuchenbaecker, Karoline Bernhardine; Neuhausen, Susan L; Robson, Mark; Barrowdale, Daniel; McGuffog, Lesley; Mulligan, Anna Marie; Andrulis, Irene L et al. (BioMed Central, 2014-12-31)
      Introduction: More than 70 common alleles are known to be involved in breast cancer (BC) susceptibility and several exhibit significant heterogeneity in their associations with different BC subtypes. Although there are ...
    • BRCA2 Hypomorphic Missense Variants Confer Moderate Risks of Breast Cancer. 

      Shimelis, Hermela; Mesman, Romy LS; Von, Nicolai Catharina; Ehlen, Asa; Guidugli, Lucia; Martin, Charlotte; Calléja, Fabienne MGR et al. (American Association for Cancer Research, 2017-06)
      Breast cancer risks conferred by many germline missense variants in the $\textit{BRCA1}$ and $\textit{BRCA2}$ genes, often referred to as variants of uncertain significance (VUS), have not been established. In this study, ...
    • Evidence for SMAD3 as a modifier of breast cancer risk in BRCA2 mutation carriers 

      Walker, Logan C; Fredericksen, Zachary S; Wang, Xianshu; Tarrell, Robert; Pankratz, Vernon Shane; Lindor, Noralane M; Beesley, Jonathan et al. (2010-11-29)
      Abstract Introduction Current attempts to identify genetic modifiers of BRCA1 and BRCA2 associated risk have focused on a candidate gene approach, based on knowledge of gene functions, or the development of large genome-wide ...
