BRIP1 (BACH1) variants and familial breast cancer risk: a case-control study. 
Abstract:
BACKGROUND: Inactivating and truncating mutations of the nuclear BRCA1-interacting protein 1 (BRIP1) have been shown to be the major cause of Fanconi anaemia and, due to subsequent alterations of BRCA1 function, predispose to breast cancer (BC).
