Breast cancer link to faulty gene

30th August 2007

A team of scientists working in London and Italy say they have linked a faulty copy of a gene with the development of breast cancer.

Researchers studying biopsies found that Tip60 did not work as actively in breast cancer tissue as it did in normal tissue and that low Tip60 activity was particularly associated with aggressive tumours. The findings have been published in the journal Nature and scientists say their discovery has implications for the treatment of women with the disease.
