Hereditary nonpolyposis coloretal cancer: identification of novel germline mutations in two kindreds not fulfulling the Amsterdam criteria. Mutations in brief no. 203. Online.


Hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer results from heritable defects in the MLH1, MSH2, PMS1 and PMS2 genes, which encode proteins involved in the mismatch repair process. In this work we report the identification of two novel germline mutations in the MLH1 gene from two unrelated HNPCC families. The two affected families do not fulfill the Amsterdam… (More)
