Summaries for BRIP1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BRIP1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the RecQ DEAH helicase family and interacts with the BRCT repeats of breast cancer, type 1 (BRCA1). The bound complex is important in the normal double-strand break repair function of breast cancer, type 1 (BRCA1). This gene may be a target of germline cancer-inducing mutations.

GeneCards Summary for BRIP1 Gene

BRIP1 (BRCA1 Interacting Protein C-Terminal Helicase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with BRIP1 include fanconi anemia, complementation group j and brip1-related breast cancer. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle / Checkpoint Control and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include 4 iron, 4 sulfur cluster binding and ATP-dependent DNA helicase activity. An important paralog of this gene is RTEL1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BRIP1 Gene

  • DNA-dependent ATPase and 5 to 3 DNA helicase required for the maintenance of chromosomal stability. Acts late in the Fanconi anemia pathway, after FANCD2 ubiquitination. Involved in the repair of DNA double-strand breaks by homologous recombination in a manner that depends on its association with BRCA1.

Disorders for BRIP1 Gene

(2) OMIM Diseases for BRIP1 Gene (605882)


  • 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:11301010}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Fanconi anemia complementation group J (FANCJ) [MIM:609054]: A disorder affecting all bone marrow elements and resulting in anemia, leukopenia and thrombopenia. It is associated with cardiac, renal and limb malformations, dermal pigmentary changes, and a predisposition to the development of malignancies. At the cellular level it is associated with hypersensitivity to DNA-damaging agents, chromosomal instability (increased chromosome breakage) and defective DNA repair. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16116423, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16116424, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20639400}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
