Dear colleagues,
one of our patients has been tested for the presence of mutations in BRCA1, BRCA2 genes. The following mutations have been revealed: BRCA1: 1186A>G (Q356R); BRCA2: 203G>A (5-UTR), 1342C>A (H372N). It is not clear for me on the clinical importance of these mutations. Actually I have found only a few publications in which these mutations were mentioned. Whether somebody can help us with this subject?

Thanks in advance,

the BRCA1 1186A>G is found in a family associated with a deleterious mutation.
The 203G>A is also found asociated with a deleterious mutation in one family.
This is from the french consortium.

Have you tried the BIC database, URL:

it's open access and free. Most of the info comes from Myriad, but they also do functional studies as well on new sequence variants to try and determine pathogenicity.
