Here you can see the gene and the variant being analyzed.
We summarize a large amount of clinical data on this gene here. Links are added where available to source information.
Prediction information is summarized here, the percentage shows the likelihood that the variant is pathogenic.
Agreement is a measure (out of 5 stars) of how much our predictors agree between each other. When predictors agree, the prediction is more likely to be correct.
Data quality is a measure (out of 5 stars) of how good the underlying data for this prediction is. This is an assessment of the depth of our alignments and the number of structures available, among other factors.
This table shows literature for this exact position and protein, if it is available.

BRCA1 - ENST00000357654
Ensembl | RefSeq | UniProt
|Location||GRCh38 17:43044295-43125483 Ensembl UCSC|
|Description||BRCA1, DNA repair associated
E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase that specifically mediates the formation of 'Lys-6'-linked polyubiquitin chains and plays a central role in DNA repair by facilitating cellular responses to DNA damage. It is unclear whether it also mediates the formation of other types of polyubiquitin chains. The E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase activity is required for its tumor suppressor function. The BRCA1-BARD1 heterodimer coordinates a diverse range of cellular pathways such as DNA damage repair, ubiquitination and transcriptional regulation to maintain genomic stability. Regulates centrosomal microtubule nucleation. Required for normal cell cycle progression from G2 to mitosis. Required for appropriate cell cycle arrests after ionizing irradiation in both the S-phase and the G2 phase of the cell cycle. Involved in transcriptional regulation of P21 in response to DNA damage. Required for FANCD2 targeting to sites of DNA damage. May function as a transcriptional regulator. Inhibits lipid synthesis by binding to inactive phosphorylated ACACA and preventing its dephosphorylation. Contributes to homologous recombination repair (HRR) via its direct interaction with PALB2, fine-tunes recombinational repair partly through its modulatory role in the PALB2-dependent loading of BRCA2-RAD51 repair machinery at DNA breaks. Component of the BRCA1-RBBP8 complex which regulates CHEK1 activation and controls cell cycle G2/M checkpoints on DNA damage via BRCA1-mediated ubiquitination of RBBP8. Acts as a transcriptional activator
