    Abstract: Two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at 6q25.1, near the ESR1 gene, have been implicated in the susceptibility to breast cancer for Asian (rs2046210) and European women (rs9397435). A genome-wide association study in Europeans identified two further breast cancer susceptibility variants: rs11249433 at 1p11.2 and rs999737 in RAD51L1 at 14q24.1. Although previously identified breast cancer susceptibility variants have been shown to be associated with breast cancer risk for BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers, the involvement of these SNPs to breast cancer susceptibility in mutation carriers is currently unknown. To address this, we genotyped these SNPs in BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers from 42 studies from the Consortium of Investigators of Modifiers of BRCA1/2. In the analysis of 14 123 BRCA1 and 8053 BRCA2 mutation carriers of European ancestry, the 6q25.1 SNPs (r(2) = 0.14) were independently associated with the risk of breast cancer for BRCA1 mutation carriers [ hazard ratio (HR) = 1.17, 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.11-1.23, P-trend = 4.5 x 10(-9) for rs2046210; HR = 1.28, 95% CI: 1.18-1.40, P-trend = 1.3 x 10(-8) for rs9397435], but only rs9397435 was associated with the risk for BRCA2 carriers (HR = 1.14, 95% CI: 1.01-1.28, P-trend = 0.031). SNP rs11249433 (1p11.2) was associated with the risk of breast cancer for BRCA2 mutation carriers (HR = 1.09, 95% CI: 1.02-1.17, P-trend = 0.015), but was not associated with breast cancer risk for BRCA1 mutation carriers (HR = 0.97, 95% CI: 0.92-1.02, P-trend = 0.20). SNP rs999737 (RAD51L1) was not associated with breast cancer risk for either BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation carriers (P-trend = 0.27 and 0.30, respectively). The identification of SNPs at 6q25.1 associated with breast cancer risk for BRCA1 mutation carriers will lead to a better understanding of the biology of tumour development in these women

    Abstract: Recently, a locus on chromosome 6q22.33 (rs2180341) was reported to be associated with increased breast cancer risk in the Ashkenazi Jewish (AJ) population, and this association was also observed in populations of non-AJ European ancestry. In the present study, we performed a large replication analysis of rs2180341 using data from 31,428 invasive breast cancer cases and 34,700 controls collected from 25 studies in the Breast Cancer Association Consortium (BCAC). In addition, we evaluated whether rs2180341 modifies breast cancer risk in 3,361 BRCA1 and 2,020 BRCA2 carriers from 11 centers in the Consortium of Investigators of Modifiers of BRCA1/2 (CIMBA). Based on the BCAC data from women of European ancestry, we found evidence for a weak association with breast cancer risk for rs2180341 (per-allele odds ratio (OR) = 1.03, 95% CI 1.00-1.06, p = 0.023). There was evidence for heterogeneity in the ORs among studies (I(2) = 49.3%; p = 〈0.004). In CIMBA, we observed an inverse association with the minor allele of rs2180341 and breast cancer risk in BRCA1 mutation carriers (per-allele OR = 0.89, 95%CI 0.80-1.00, p = 0.048), indicating a potential protective effect of this allele. These data suggest that that 6q22.33 confers a weak effect on breast cancer risk.

    Description: Inactivation of tumour-suppressor genes by homozygous deletion is a prototypic event in the cancer genome, yet such deletions often encompass neighbouring genes. We propose that homozygous deletions in such passenger genes can expose cancer-specific therapeutic vulnerabilities when the collaterally deleted gene is a member of a functionally redundant family of genes carrying out an essential function. The glycolytic gene enolase 1 (ENO1) in the 1p36 locus is deleted in glioblastoma (GBM), which is tolerated by the expression of ENO2. Here we show that short-hairpin-RNA-mediated silencing of ENO2 selectively inhibits growth, survival and the tumorigenic potential of ENO1-deleted GBM cells, and that the enolase inhibitor phosphonoacetohydroxamate is selectively toxic to ENO1-deleted GBM cells relative to ENO1-intact GBM cells or normal astrocytes. The principle of collateral vulnerability should be applicable to other passenger-deleted genes encoding functionally redundant essential activities and provide an effective treatment strategy for cancers containing such genomic events.〈br /〉〈br /〉〈a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3712624/" target="_blank"〉〈img src="https://static.pubmed.gov/portal/portal3rc.fcgi/4089621/img/3977009" border="0"〉〈/a〉   〈a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3712624/" target="_blank"〉This paper as free author manuscript - peer-reviewed and accepted for publication〈/a〉〈br /〉〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Notes: 〈/span〉Muller, Florian L -- Colla, Simona -- Aquilanti, Elisa -- Manzo, Veronica E -- Genovese, Giannicola -- Lee, Jaclyn -- Eisenson, Daniel -- Narurkar, Rujuta -- Deng, Pingna -- Nezi, Luigi -- Lee, Michelle A -- Hu, Baoli -- Hu, Jian -- Sahin, Ergun -- Ong, Derrick -- Fletcher-Sananikone, Eliot -- Ho, Dennis -- Kwong, Lawrence -- Brennan, Cameron -- Wang, Y Alan -- Chin, Lynda -- DePinho, Ronald A -- 3 P01 CA095616-08S1/CA/NCI NIH HHS/ -- 57006984/Howard Hughes Medical Institute/ -- P01 CA095616/CA/NCI NIH HHS/ -- P01CA95616/CA/NCI NIH HHS/ -- T32-CA009361/CA/NCI NIH HHS/ -- England -- Nature. 2012 Aug 16;488(7411):337-42. doi: 10.1038/nature11331.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Author address: 〈/span〉Department of Genomic Medicine, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas 77030, USA.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Record origin:〈/span〉 〈a href="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22895339" target="_blank"〉PubMed〈/a〉

    Notes: A full-band Monte Carlo model is used to investigate the probability distribution functions of impact ionization path length and impact ionization energy for electrons and holes in GaAs. The simulations show that the soft ionization threshold energy in GaAs allows impact ionization to occur at energies much higher than the band gap. As a result, secondary carriers have a shorter dead space than newly injected carriers. The ionization path length distributions narrow at higher fields, producing a more deterministic impact ionization process in thin devices. The model is also used to simulate avalanche multiplication and noise in submicron homojunction GaAs p+-i-n+ diodes. The predicted mean multiplication, 〈M〉 and excess noise factor, F are in quantitative agreement with the experimental results, in which F decreases as the length of multiplication region is reduced. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Notes: We use a Monte Carlo model to investigate the improvement of avalanche noise performance in thin p+-i-n+ GaAs diodes. The model predicts a decrease in avalanche noise as the multiplication length decreases from 1.0 to 0.05 μm, in good agreement with recent experimental measurements. Our simulations suggest that electron initiated multiplication in short devices has inherently reduced noise despite higher feedback from hole ionization, as compared to long devices. This low noise behavior results from the narrower ionization probability distribution and larger dead space effect as a higher operating electric field needed in short devices. © 1998 American Institute of Physics.

    Notes: Avalanche multiplication and noise in 1.0, 0.5, 0.1, and 0.05 μm GaAs p+-i-n+ diodes have been calculated for both electron and hole initiated multiplication using a simple model which incorporates a randomly-generated ionization path length (RPL) and a hard-threshold dead space. We find that the mean multiplication obtained using this RPL model is in excellent agreement, even for the shortest structure, with that obtained from an analytical-band structure Monte Carlo (MC) model, which incorporates soft-threshold effects. However, it predicts slightly lower avalanche noise in the shorter devices. This difference results from the narrower ionization path length probability distribution and larger dead space of the hard-threshold RPL model at high electric fields as compared to the more realistic distribution function associated with the relatively sophisticated MC model. © 1998 American Institute of Physics.
