Abstract

The target substrates of DNA mismatch recognising factors MutSalpha (MSH2+MSH6) and MutSbeta (MSH2+MSH3) have already been widely researched. However, the extent of their functional redundancy and clinical substance remains unclear. Mismatch repair (MMR)-deficient tumours are strongly associated with microsatellite instability (MSI) and the degree and type of MSI seem to be dependent on the MMR gene affected, and is linked to its substrate specificities. Deficiency in MSH2 and MSH6 is associated with both mononucleotide and dinucleotide repeat instability. Although no pathogenic MSH3 mutations have been reported, its deficiency is also suggested to cause low dinucleotide repeat instability.
