GENE MUTATION AND TUMOR
According to the Breast Cancer Information Core (BIC), there are more than 3,000 kinds of BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations, distributing throughout the whole coding region. The most common types of pathogenic mutations are frameshift mutations, nonsense mutations, while there are no obvious mutation hotspots. Most mutations lead to the formation of truncated proteins, by which resulting in the loss of BRCA1 or BRCA2 protein function and lead to the occurrence of tumor.
Germline mutations in the BRCA1/2 gene may increase the risk of cancer. About 10-15% of ovarian cancers ，5-10% of breast cancers are caused by BRCA1/2 gene germline mutations. About 45% of BRCA1/2 mutation carriers have a risk of developing ovarian cancer in the future, the risk for breast cancer reaches 85%.
JAMA. 2017 Jun 20; 317(23): 2402-2416.
Figure A: BRCA1 and BRCA 2 mutation carriers have a cumulative risk of breast cancer for 72% and 69% bythe age of 80;
Panel B: BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers have a cumulative risk of ovarian cancer for 44% and 17% bythe age of 80 years.
