    BRCA Gene produced proteins that detects deleterious mutations in the DNA and trigger repair. Thus it helps to prevent cancer in general. But it was seen that BRCA mutation mainly causes breast cancer.

     

    Why such specificity?

    I searched some resources where it says the reason is unknown. An underlying mechanism of such specificity is still to be discovered.
