Paper title: A screen of the complete protein kinase gene family identifies diverse patterns of somatic mutations in human breast cancer

Authors: Philip Stephens et al.

Journal: Nature Genetics, June 2005.

The coding sequences of 518 protein kinases in 25 breast cancers were examined. In many tumors, no somatic mutations were detected. But a few had numerous somatic mutations with distinctive patterns indicative of either a mutator phenotype or a past exposure.

The results indicate that a previously hidden diversity of mutational processes exists in breast cancer.
