Scientists discover "missing link" between rare disease and inherited forms of breast cancer


Following the gene trail of a rare disease, scientists have discovered a new pathway to BRCA1, a gene that, when defective, is the most common source of inherited breast cancer. Two studies published in the February issue of Molecular Cell, by Alan D'Andrea, MD, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute show how genes involved in a condition called Fanconi anemia form a pathway to the activation of BRCA1.
