The circulating calcium is widely discussed on its relationship with clinical features of breast cancer., In a recent report, Wang et al. found that “decreased sensitivity of the calcium-sensing receptor (CASR) to calcium due to inactivating polymorphisms at rs1801725, may predispose up to 20% of breast cancer cases to high circulating calcium-associated larger and/or aggressive breast tumors.” In fact, the relationship between some haplotypes of CASR is mentioned for the relationship with high blood calcium. Here, the authors tried to use the basic molecular quantum calculation for predicting the molecular mass change due to rs1801725. The similar approach as the previously published article was used. First, the prediction of transcription of rs1801725 was done, and the resulted corresponding A986S mutated type was further assessed for change in molecular mass. The mutated site (986) has 118% mass comparing to naïve wild type. Comparing to naïve A986, the S986 has a lower molecular mass. This can implies that more molecular reaction and result biological produce and process should be more in mutated type due to rs1801725. Hence, the higher circulating blood calcium can be expected in rs1801725.
