LP422925-0   MLH1 gene methylation analysis
The MLH1 gene (mutL homolog 1) [HGNC Gene ID:7127] is located on chromosome 3p21.3. This gene was identified as a locus frequently mutated in hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer (HNPCC), also known as Lynch syndrome. It is a human homolog of the E. coli DNA mismatch repair gene mutL, consistent with the characteristic alterations in microsatellite sequences (RER+phenotype) found in HNPCC. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. Additional transcript variants have been described, but their full-length natures have not been determined.[provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009] [NCBI Gene ID:4292] Source: National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) Gene
