Implicated in

Entity BCAS3 is overexpressed in about 10% of breast cancers, and a hybrid gene BCAS4-BCAS3 was found in breat cancer cell line with a t(17;20)(q23;q13)
Hybrid/Mutated Gene 5' BCAS4 is fused to the 2 last exons (23 and 24) of BCAS3; transcript includes exon 1 from BCAS4 and 21 bp from BCAS3 exon 23; it encodes a 66 aminoacids protein; no reciprocal transcript


Cloning of BCAS3 (17q23) and BCAS4 (20q13) genes that undergo amplification, overexpression, and fusion in breast cancer.
