Official Full Name
breast carcinoma amplified sequence 1
Background
This gene resides in a region at 20q13 which is amplified in a variety of tumor types and associated with more aggressive tumor phenotypes. Among the genes identified from this region, it was found to be highly expressed in three amplified breast cancer cell lines and in one breast tumor without amplification at 20q13.2. However, this gene is not in the common region of maximal amplification and its expression was not detected in the breast cancer cell line MCF7, in which this region is highly amplified. Although not consistently expressed, this gene is a candidate oncogene.
Synonyms
BCAS1; breast carcinoma amplified sequence 1; breast carcinoma-amplified sequence 1; AIBC1; NABC1; novel amplified in breast cancer 1; amplified and overexpressed in breast cancer
