Hi all. This is slightly off-topic but I was wondering if anyone here knows where I might obtain a complete DNA or protein sequence for both BRCA1 and BRCA2? I retrieved protein sequence data from NCBI but I need to obtain two copies of each gene, i.e., one normal and another damaged for comparison purposes. I am unsure as to whether the protein sequences I have obtained are "healthy" copies. Thanks, ~Caitlin [[alternative HTML version deleted]]

Hi Caitlin, If you have found the protein sequences at NCBI Protein, they are (unless otherwise specified) what you could call 'healthy'. I am not quire sure what you mean by damaged copies. You will have to investigate the litterature to see which BRCA1/2 mutations are found in breast cancer. To my knowledge, there are several mutations in the BRCA genes which have been associated with a higher onset of especially breast cancer. You can use both UniProt and OMIM to investigate this.
