Mismatch repair gene expression defects contribute to microsatellite instability in ovarian carcinoma.

Abstract

BACKGROUND hMLH1, the human MutL homologue, has been linked to microsatellite instability (MSI) in gastrointestinal tumors. However, to the authors' knowledge, the role of hMLH1, the other mismatch repair genes (MMR), and MSI in ovarian carcinoma has not been well defined. The purpose of the current study was to determine the relation between MSI of ovarian… (More)
