Mutation in BRCA Gene dramatically Increases the Risk of Breast Cancer

Faults or breaks develop in the DNAs (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) that house several genes, may be following repeated divisions or other environmental factors like radiation. The primary responsibility of the BRCA gene is to signal for a protein that can repair the defects in the genes in association with some other proteins. Both BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 protein interact with the protein produced by the RAD51 and PALB 2 gene to mend breaks in DNAs.
