BRCA1 and Brain Development (image) Salk Institute Caption The images show an early developmental stage of normal (top row) and BRCA1-deficient brains (bottom row). The imaged embryos show abundant proliferation of cell growth (red, first column) in both normal and BRCA1-deficient brains at this stage. However brains lacking BRCA1 exhibit high levels of cellular suicide (green, second column). The third column shows an overlay of the other columns.
