What does the RAD51D gene do?

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for RAD51D Gene Involved in the homologous recombination repair (HRR) pathway of double-stranded DNA breaks arising during DNA replication or induced by DNA-damaging agents.

How common is RAD51D?

There is a 50/50 random chance to pass on a RAD51D mutation to your sons and daughters.

Does RAD51D cause Fanconi anemia?

A rare and serious childhood disease called Fanconi Anemia (FA) can occur in children who inherit a RAD51D mutation from both their mother and their father. Children who have FA have blood problems, physical and developmental issues, and an increased risk of cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma .

What percent of triple negative breast cancer is hereditary?

The results, published this week in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, showed that 14.5% (167) of the triple negative patients had inherited genetic mutations.

Does everyone have the TP53 gene?

Everyone has two copies of the TP53 gene, which we randomly inherit from each of our parents. Mutations in one copy of the TP53 gene can increase the chance for you to develop certain types of cancer in your lifetime. People with TP53 mutations have Li-Fraumeni syndrome (LFS).

How is Fanconi anemia inherited?

Fanconi anemia is most often inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern , which means both copies of the gene in each cell have mutations. The parents of an individual with an autosomal recessive condition each carry one copy of the mutated gene, but they typically do not show signs and symptoms of the condition.

What is the life expectancy of someone with triple negative breast cancer?

5-year relative survival rates for triple-negative breast cancer

SEER Stage 5-year Relative Survival Rate
Localized 91%
Regional 65%
Distant 12%
All stages combined 77%

How long do you live with triple negative breast cancer?

In general, about91% of all women with triple-negative breast cancer are still alive 5 years after diagnosis. If the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes near the breast (regional) the 5 year relative survival rate is about 65%. If the cancer has spread to distant places, the 5 year relative survival rate is 11%.

What is the ATM gene mutation?

Researchers have identified several hundred mutations in the ATM gene that cause ataxia-telangiectasia. People with this disorder have mutations in both copies of the ATM gene in each cell. Most of these mutations disrupt protein production, resulting in an abnormally small, nonfunctional version of the ATM protein.
