    • Breast cancer risk variants at 6q25 display different phenotype associations and regulate ESR1, RMND1 and CCDC170 

      Dunning, Alison Margaret; Michailidou, Kyriaki; Kuchenbaecker, Karoline Bernhardine; Thompson, Deborah Jane; French, Juliet D; Beesley, Jonathan; Healey, Catherine S et al. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
      We analysed 3872 common genetic variants across the ESR1 locus (encoding estrogen receptor–alpha) in 118,816 subjects from three international consortia. We found evidence for at least five independent causal variants, ...
    • Polymorphisms in a Putative Enhancer at the 10q21.2 Breast Cancer Risk Locus Regulate NRBF2 Expression 

      Darabi, Hatef; McCue, Karen; Beesley, Jonathan; Michailidou, Kyriaki; Nord, Silje; Kar, Siddhartha; Humphreys, Keith et al. (Elsevier, 2015-06-11)
      Genome-wide association studies have identified SNPs near ZNF365 at 10q21.2 that are associated with both breast cancer risk and mammographic density. To identify the most likely causal SNPs, we fine mapped the association ...
