BRCA1/2 Modifiers ~ Mutation Spectrum
~ Genetics of Breast & Ovarian Cancer

Elements physically separate from BRCA1/2 that may modify their expression. Includes double heterozygosity, when the separate element is a mutation in a cancer predisposition gene (or any other phenotype-bearing gene) in its own right. Also includes polymorphisms/SNPs (other than those in BRCA1/2 themselves) that may effect BRCA1/2 expression, when in the presence of BRCA1/2 mutations. (For polymorphisms/SNPs in BRCA1/2, see Non-Standard BRCA1/2 Mutations, Expression-modifying Conditions ~ Mutation Spectrum.)
