LOH/somatic inactivation/biallelic inactivation?

... or separate? If you're heterozygous, does somatic/biallelic inactivation not always lead to loss of heterozygosity? e.g. "The tumour suppressor gene p53 is frequently inactivated in gastric carcinoma by loss of heterozygosity (LOH), missense mutations and frame shift deletions" ...

BRCA1 Gene - Breast cancer and non-breast cells

... to cancer biology class. The BRCA1 gene was discussed and it was mentioned that it is causative (?) for breast cancer. However, it is a tumor suppressor of sorts and is present in all the cells. Then what happens when it comes to other cells? Why does a defect in this particular gene does ...

... diversity (this is important in, for example, immunity). However, in a lot of cases (particularly in important proteins such as p53 -> a tumor suppressor protein) most alleles are preferred to be functioning. An allele that can produce an acceptable amount of protein product without both copies ...
