BRCA1 protein helps prevent the cells from growing in an uncontrolled way by repairing nuclear DNA with proteins encoded by RAD51 and BARD1, and is associated with RNA polymerases in their C-terminal domain allowing its interaction with histone deacetylase complexes participating in cell proliferation, developmental processes and transcription regulation.
BRCA1 protein expression level and CD44(+) phenotype in breast cancer patients.
Low levels of the BRCA1 protein in brain cells may be associated with dementia caused by Alzheimer's disease, according to new evidence from the brains of deceased patients with Alzheimer's disease or mild cognitive impairment, as well as experimental mouse models of the disease.
1817del is predicted to result in the substitution of proline for leucine at amino acid position 606 followed by a premature truncation of the BRCA1 protein at amino acid position 611.
The Court held that, having regard to the relevant factors, an isolated nucleic acid, coding for the BRCA1 protein, with specified variations, is not a manner of manufacture.
Results: The results showed that mutated TP53 in MDA-MB-468 cells interacted with BRCA1 protein in vivo and did not effect WT TP53 binding to this protein in vitro.
Espen Spangenburg, associate professor of kinesiology, and his laboratory team are the first to identify that the BRCA1 protein is expressed in the skeletal muscle of both mice and humans.
In our materials, this activity precedes a discussion of the BRCA1 protein, its binding sites, and how mutations in the protein could lead to an increased risk of breast cancer.
The COOH-terminus of BRCA1 protein contains an amino acid sequence motif known as BRCT domain.
In the nucleus of many types of normal cells, the BRCA1 protein interacts with several other proteins, including proteins produced to mend breaks in DNA.
77) Many of these patents include twenty or more individual claims, designed to exclude others not just from the use of one specific isolated DNA sequence coding for the expressed BRCA1 protein, but even from the use of isolated DNA that is only identified in that patent as having some small overlap with a specific isolated DNA sequence while still coding for the BRCA1 protein.
Investigators have found that one of the key abnormalities in the basal-like carcinomas is a reduction of BRCA1 protein and messenger RNA levels.
