Evolution of instability at coding and non-coding repeat sequences in human MSI-H colorectal cancers.


A number of human genes containing coding mononucleotide repeat sequences are particularly prone to mutations in tumors with defects in mismatch repair (MMR) genes (MSI-H cancers). In a large series of MSI-H colorectal tumors, we looked for mutations in 25 coding repeats contained in eight genes already known to be mutated in these cancers or in 17 other… (More)
