Breast Cancer Susceptibility Protein 2 (BRCA2)

BRCA2 is a protein belongs to the tumor suppressor gene family and the protein encoded by this gene is involved in the repair of chromosomal damage with an important role in the error-free repair of DNA double strand breaks. The BRCA2 gene is located on the long (q) arm of chromosome 13 at position 12.3 (13q12.3), from base pair 31,787,616 to base pair 31,871,804.

The BRCA2 protein binds to and regulates the protein produced by the RAD51 gene to fix breaks in DNA.  These breaks can be caused by natural and medical radiation or other environmental exposures, but also occur when chromosomes exchange genetic material during a special type of cell division that creates sperm and eggs (meiosis).
