    DNA Repair Gene Variant Linked to Brain Cancer Risk

    A certain variation in a DNA repair gene is associated with an increased risk of developing a type of brain cancer called meningioma.

    Meningioma is an uncommon brain tumor that occurs in the meninges, the membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord. Relatives of meningioma patients are at greater risk of developing the cancer, but exposure to radiation also increases ones risk for the disease.

    Richard Houlston, Ph.D., of the Institute of Cancer Research, in Sutton, England, and colleagues investigated whether certain variants in DNA repair genes increased the risk of developing meningioma. They analyzed single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 136 DNA repair genes for their association with meningioma risk.

    A SNP known as rs4968451, which is in a breast cancer susceptibility gene, was associated with increased risk of meningioma. Almost 30 percent of Europeans carry this genetic variant, which, the authors write, could indicate the substantial contribution of the variant in the development of meningioma.
