 en Ligand binding prediction for BRCA1, a key molecule in the pathogensis of breast cancer
Wiwanitkit, V.

Abstract

Background : Cell adhesion plays a pivotal role in diverse biological processes that occur in oncogenesis. BRCA1 was the first breast cancer susceptibility gene to be successfully identified and cloned. The role of BRCA1 as a predictive marker of chemotherapy response in breast cancer is proposed. Ligand binding is an important factor in the success of chemoprevention.
Materials and Methods : In this work, the author performed a ligand-binding prediction for BRCA1 using a new bioinformatics tool.
Results : According to this study, 10 strong possible ligands were identified.
Conclusion : These sites can be useful for further drug development studies.

Keywords
BRCA1, ligand binding
