Summaries for BRCA1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BRCA1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a nuclear phosphoprotein that plays a role in maintaining genomic stability, and it also acts as a tumor suppressor. The encoded protein combines with other tumor suppressors, DNA damage sensors, and signal transducers to form a large multi-subunit protein complex known as the BRCA1-associated genome surveillance complex (BASC). This gene product associates with RNA polymerase II, and through the C-terminal domain, also interacts with histone deacetylase complexes. This protein thus plays a role in transcription, DNA repair of double-stranded breaks, and recombination. Mutations in this gene are responsible for approximately 40% of inherited breast cancers and more than 80% of inherited breast and ovarian cancers. Alternative splicing plays a role in modulating the subcellular localization and physiological function of this gene. Many alternatively spliced transcript variants, some of which are disease-associated mutations, have been described for this gene, but the full-length natures of only some of these variants has been described. A related pseudogene, which is also located on chromosome 17, has been identified. [provided by RefSeq, May 2009]

GeneCards Summary for BRCA1 Gene

BRCA1 (Breast Cancer 1, Early Onset) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with BRCA1 include pancreatic cancer 4 and breast-ovarian cancer, familial, 1. Among its related pathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and enzyme binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BRCA1 Gene

  • E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase that specifically mediates the formation of Lys-6-linked polyubiquitin chains and plays a central role in DNA repair by facilitating cellular responses to DNA damage. It is unclear whether it also mediates the formation of other types of polyubiquitin chains. The E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase activity is required for its tumor suppressor function. The BRCA1-BARD1 heterodimer coordinates a diverse range of cellular pathways such as DNA damage repair, ubiquitination and transcriptional regulation to maintain genomic stability. Regulates centrosomal microtubule nucleation. Required for normal cell cycle progression from G2 to mitosis. Required for appropriate cell cycle arrests after ionizing irradiation in both the S-phase and the G2 phase of the cell cycle. Involved in transcriptional regulation of P21 in response to DNA damage. Required for FANCD2 targeting to sites of DNA damage. May function as a transcriptional regulator. Inhibits lipid synthesis by binding to inactive phosphorylated ACACA and preventing its dephosphorylation. Contributes to homologous recombination repair (HRR) via its direct interaction with PALB2, fine-tunes recombinational repair partly through its modulatory role in the PALB2-dependent loading of BRCA2-RAD51 repair machinery at DNA breaks. Component of the BRCA1-RBBP8 complex which regulates CHEK1 activation and controls cell cycle G2/M checkpoints on DNA damage via BRCA1-mediated ubiquitination of RBBP8.

    Quaternary structure:
    • Heterodimer with BARD1. Part of the BRCA1-associated genome surveillance complex (BASC), which contains BRCA1, MSH2, MSH6, MLH1, ATM, BLM, PMS2 and the MRE11-RAD50-NBN protein (MRN) complex. This association could be a dynamic process changing throughout the cell cycle and within subnuclear domains. Component of the BRCA1-A complex, at least composed of the BRCA1, BARD1, UIMC1, BRCC3, BRE and BABAM1. Interacts (via the BRCT domains) with FAM175A. Component of the BRCA1-RBBP8 complex. Interacts (via the BRCT domains) with RBBP8 (Ser-327 phosphorylated form); the interaction ubiquitinates RBBP8, regulates CHEK1 activation, and involves RBBP8 in BRCA1-dependent G2/M checkpoint control on DNA damage. Associates with RNA polymerase II holoenzyme. Interacts with SMC1A, COBRA1, DCLRE1C, CLSPN. CHEK1, CHEK2, BAP1, BRCC3, AURKA, UBXN1 and KIAA0101/PAF15. Interacts (via BRCT domains) with BRIP1 (phosphorylated form). Interacts with FANCD2 (ubiquitinated form). Interacts with H2AFX (phosphorylated on Ser-140). Interacts (via the BRCT domains) with ACACA (phosphorylated form); the interaction prevents dephosphorylation of ACACA. Part of a BRCA complex containing BRCA1, BRCA2 and PALB2. Interacts directly with PALB2; the interaction is essential for its function in HRR. Interacts directly with BRCA2; the interaction occurs only in the presence of PALB2 which serves as the bridging protein. Interacts (via the BRCT domains) with LMO4; the interaction represses the transcriptional activity of BRCA1.

BRCA1_HUMAN
  • Breast cancer (BC) [MIM:114480]: A common malignancy originating from breast epithelial tissue. Breast neoplasms can be distinguished by their histologic pattern. Invasive ductal carcinoma is by far the most common type. Breast cancer is etiologically and genetically heterogeneous. Important genetic factors have been indicated by familial occurrence and bilateral involvement. Mutations at more than one locus can be involved in different families or even in the same case. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10323242, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12442275, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12938098, ECO:0000269 PubMed:14722926, ECO:0000269 PubMed:18285836, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7545954, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7894491, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7894493, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7939630, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8554067, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8723683, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8776600, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9482581, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9609997, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9760198}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Mutations in BRCA1 are thought to be responsible for 45% of inherited breast cancer. Moreover, BRCA1 carriers have a 4-fold increased risk of colon cancer, whereas male carriers face a 3-fold increased risk of prostate cancer. Cells lacking BRCA1 show defects in DNA repair by homologous recombination.
  • Breast-ovarian cancer, familial, 1 (BROVCA1) [MIM:604370]: A condition associated with familial predisposition to cancer of the breast and ovaries. Characteristic features in affected families are an early age of onset of breast cancer (often before age 50), increased chance of bilateral cancers (cancer that develop in both breasts, or both ovaries, independently), frequent occurrence of breast cancer among men, increased incidence of tumors of other specific organs, such as the prostate. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12938098, ECO:0000269 PubMed:14722926, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8968716}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Mutations in BRCA1 are thought to be responsible for more than 80% of inherited breast-ovarian cancer.
  • Ovarian cancer (OC) [MIM:167000]: The term ovarian cancer defines malignancies originating from ovarian tissue. Although many histologic types of ovarian tumors have been described, epithelial ovarian carcinoma is the most common form. Ovarian cancers are often asymptomatic and the recognized signs and symptoms, even of late-stage disease, are vague. Consequently, most patients are diagnosed with advanced disease. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10196379, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10486320, ECO:0000269 PubMed:14746861}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Pancreatic cancer 4 (PNCA4) [MIM:614320]: A malignant neoplasm of the pancreas. Tumors can arise from both the exocrine and endocrine portions of the pancreas, but 95% of them develop from the exocrine portion, including the ductal epithelium, acinar cells, connective tissue, and lymphatic tissue. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:18762988}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
