Product Description

MSH2 is a protein involved in the mismatch repair process after DNA replication. It contains a DNA binding domain and two interaction domains, one for MSH3 or MSH6 and the other for MutL homologs. MSH2 can bind to MSH6 or to MSH3 to form the MutS alpha or the MutS beta complexes respectively. The mutations in DNA mismatch repair genes are associated with hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC). Initially, inherited mutations in the MSH2 and MLH1 homologs of the bacterial DNA mismatch repair genes MutS and MutL were demonstrated at high frequency in HNPCC and were shown to be associated with microsatellite instability. The demonstration that 10 to 45% of pancreatic, gastric, breast, ovarian and small cell lung cancers also displays microsatellite instability has been interpreted to suggest that DNA mismatch repair is not restricted to HNPCC tumors but is a common feature in tumor initiation or progression
