BRIP1 (BRCA1-interacting protein C-terminal helicase 1; AKA BACH1, FANCJ) is a tumour suppressor gene that interacts with BRCA1 to help repair double-strand DNA breaks. [1] [2] It is a good example of a gene whose mutations cause clinical manifestations that can be dominant or recessive.

Disease associations

  • Fanconi anemia [3]
    • with biallelic mutations (autosomal recessive manifestation)
  • Breast and ovarian cancer[4]
    • With monoallelic mutation (autosomal dominant manifestation)
