Mononucleotide repeat sequences are particularly prone to frameshift mutations in tumors with biallelic inactivation of the mismatch repair (MMR) genes MLH1 or MSH2. In these tumors, several genes harboring mononucleotide repeats in their coding region have been proposed as targets involved in tumor progression, among which are also the MMR genes MSH3 and(More)
