  • Publication number: 20030224463
    Abstract: Genomic sequences of human mismatch repair genes and gene products are described, as are methods of detecting mutations and/or polymorphisms in those genes. Also described are methods of diagnosing cancer susceptibility in a subject, and methods of identifying and classifying mismatch-repair-defective tumors. In particular, sequences and methods relating to human mutL homologs, hMLH1 and hPMS1 genes and gene products are provided.

  • Patent number: 5922855
    Abstract: We have discovered two human genes, hMLH1 and hPMS1, each of which apparently encodes for a protein involved in DNA mismatch repair. The hMLH1 gene encodes for a protein which is homologous to the bacterial DNA mismatch repair protein MutL, and is located on human chromosome 3p21.3-23. We believe that mutations in the hMLH1 gene cause hereditary non-polyposis colon cancer (HNPCC) in some individuals based upon the similarity of the hMLH1 gene product to the yeast DNA mismatch repair protein MLH1, the coincident location of the hMLH1 gene and the HNPCC locus on chromosome 3, and hMLH1 missense mutations in affected individuals from a chromosome 3-linked HNPCC family. The human hPMS1 gene is homologous to the yeast DNA mismatch repair gene PMS1, and is located on human chromosome 7q.
