(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Scientists are linking a newly identified gene to breast cancer.

It's called PALB-2.

Genetics experts say it's probably the most dangerous in terms of breast cancer after the BRCA genes, although less common.

Researchers looked at close to 400 women in families that have the PALB-2 mutation.

They say the faulty gene seems to give a woman a 14-percent chance of breast cancer by age 50 and a 35-percent chance by age 70.
