Functional analysis of human MLH1 mutations in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Abstract

Hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC; OMIM 120435-6) is a cancer-susceptibility syndrome linked to inherited defects in human mismatch repair (MMR) genes. Germline missense human MLH1 (hMLH1) mutations are frequently detected in HNPCC (ref. 3), making functional characterization of mutations in hMLH1 critical to the development of genetic… (More)
