Methods Of Detecting Brca1 Mutations

Abstract

Methods for detecting BRCA1 mutations are provided. The methods include the steps of determining the amount of the BRCA1 polypeptide contained in a sample of the subject, and correlating the amount of BRCA1 to the presence of the BRCA1 gene mutation in the subject, wherein the amount below a predetermined cutoff value is an indication of the presence of the mutation in the BRCA1 gene of the subject. The methods of the present invention are well suited for use to determine a condition associated with BRCA1 mutation, such as a predisposition to breast cancer, ovarian cancer, colorectal, and prostate cancers, and the presence or prognosis of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, colorectal, and prostate cancers.
