MutS homologue 2 (MSH2) is a member of Mutator S (MutS) DNA mismatch repair protein family. MSH2 bind to DNA mismatches to initiate DNA repair by forming heterodimer complexes such as: MutS alpha (MSH2-MSH6) and MutS beta (MSH2-MSH3). MSH2 mutations are found in approximately 50% of inherited non polyposis colorectal carcinoma (HNPCC) (Lynch syndrome) cases. HNPCC is an autosomal, dominantly inherited disease associated with marked increase in cancer susceptibility. Immunohistochemical analysis of MSH2 expression has been reported to be a practical and reliable method for the routine detection of the vast majority of MSI-H colorectal adenocarcinomas
