Abstract 

In this study, we characterized two blocks of minisatellites in the 5' upstream region of the BORIS gene (BORIS-MS1, -MS2). BORIS-MS2 was found to be polymorphic; therefore, this locus could be useful as a marker for DNA fingerprinting. We assessed the association between BORIS-MS2 and breast cancer by a case-control study with 428 controls and 793 breast cancers cases. Rare alleles in the younger group (age, <40) were associated with a statistically significant increased risk of breast cancer (odds ratio, 4.84; 95% confidence interval, 1.06-22.22; and P = 0.026). A statistically significant association between the short rare alleles and cancer was identified in the younger group (8.02; 1.01-63.83; P = 0.021). Kaplan-Meier estimates showed that poor prognosis was associated with patients who contained the rare alleles. Our data suggest that the short rare alleles of BORIS-MS2 could be used to identify the risk for breast cancer in young patients.
