Detection of Exon Deletions and Duplications of the Mismatch Repair Genes in Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer Families Using Multiplex Polymerase Chain Reaction of Short Fluorescent Fragments 1


Large genomic deletions within the mismatch repair MLH1 and MSH2 genes have been identified in families with the hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) syndrome, and their detection represents a technical problem. To facilitate their detection, we developed a simple semiquantitative procedure based on the multiplex PCR of short fluorescent… (More)
