- BRCA1: Beyond double-strand break repairElizabeth Alli
Stanford University School of Medicine, Department of Medicine Oncology, 269 Campus Drive, Stanford, CA 93405, USA Electronic address
DNA Repair (Amst) 32:165-71. 2015..Since its discovery, the BRCA1 tumor suppressor has been shown to play a role in multiple DNA damage response pathways. Here, we will review the involvement of BRCA1 in base-excision DNA repair and highlight its clinical implications. ..

- A clinical trial of lovastatin for modification of biomarkers associated with breast cancer riskShaveta Vinayak
Department of Medicine, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA, USA
Breast Cancer Res Treat 142:389-98. 2013..The results are inconclusive and do not exclude a favorable effect on breast cancer risk. ..
- Defective repair of oxidative dna damage in triple-negative breast cancer confers sensitivity to inhibition of poly(ADP-ribose) polymeraseElizabeth Alli
Department of Medicine Oncology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, California 94305, USA
Cancer Res 69:3589-96. 2009..The defect may be attributed, at least in part, to a novel role for BRCA1 in the BER pathway. Overall, these data offer preventive, prognostic, and therapeutic usefulness...
