Emma's brother, Dr Luke Hughes-Davies, who discovered the gene, believes EMSY fuels cancer's development.
Dr Hughes-Davies, who has been working on the project for the last seven years, decided to call the gene EMSY after discovering its genetic letter code spelled the word 'sister'.
But this latest breakthrough suggests that the newly-found EMSY gene shuts down the action of functional BRCA2, to fuel cancer's development.
EMSY has the ability to turn genes on and off as well as having a role in repairing damaged DNA.
