The presence of an uncomplimentary base in double-stranded DNA caused by spontaneous deamination of cytosine or adenine, mismatching during homologous recombination, or errors in DNA replication. Multiple, sequential base pair mismatches lead to formation of heteroduplex DNA; (NUCLEIC ACID HETERODUPLEXES).
Double-stranded nucleic acid molecules (DNA-DNA or DNA-RNA) which contain regions of nucleotide mismatches (non-complementary). In vivo, these heteroduplexes can result from mutation or genetic recombination; in vitro, they are formed by nucleic acid hybridization. Electron microscopic analysis of the resulting heteroduplexes facilitates the mapping of regions of base sequence homology of nucleic acids.

A group of deoxyribonucleotides (up to 12) in which the phosphate residues of each deoxyribonucleotide act as bridges in forming diester linkages between the deoxyribose moieties.
The reconstruction of a continuous two-stranded DNA molecule without mismatch from a molecule which contained damaged regions. The major repair mechanisms are excision repair, in which defective regions in one strand are excised and resynthesized using the complementary base pairing information in the intact strand; photoreactivation repair, in which the lethal and mutagenic effects of ultraviolet light are eliminated; and post-replication repair, in which the primary lesions are not repaired, but the gaps in one daughter duplex are filled in by incorporation of portions of the other (undamaged) daughter duplex. Excision repair and post-replication repair are sometimes referred to as "dark repair" because they do not require light.
A deoxyribonucleotide polymer that is the primary genetic material of all cells. Eukaryotic and prokaryotic organisms normally contain DNA in a double-stranded state, yet several important biological processes transiently involve single-stranded regions. DNA, which consists of a polysugar-phosphate backbone possessing projections of purines (adenine and guanine) and pyrimidines (thymine and cytosine), forms a double helix that is held together by hydrogen bonds between these purines and pyrimidines (adenine to thymine and guanine to cytosine).
A DNA repair pathway involved in correction of errors introduced during DNA replication when an incorrect base, which cannot form hydrogen bonds with the corresponding base in the parent strand, is incorporated into the daughter strand. Excinucleases recognize the BASE PAIR MISMATCH and cause a segment of polynucleotide chain to be excised from the daughter strand, thereby removing the mismatched base.

Cleavage yields random or specific double-stranded fragments with terminal 5'-phosphates. The function of restriction enzymes is to destroy any foreign DNA that invades the host cell. Most have been studied in bacterial systems, but a few have been found in eukaryotic organisms.

Repair of large insertion/deletion heterologies in human nuclear extracts is directed by a 5' single-strand break and is independent of the mismatch repair system. (1/1695)

The repair of 12-, 27-, 62-, and 216-nucleotide unpaired insertion/deletion heterologies has been demonstrated in nuclear extracts of human cells. When present in covalently closed circular heteroduplexes or heteroduplexes containing a single-strand break 3' to the heterology, such structures are subject to a low level repair reaction that occurs with little strand bias. However, the presence of a single-strand break 5' to the insertion/deletion heterology greatly increases the efficiency of rectification and directs repair to the incised DNA strand. Because nick direction of repair is independent of the strand in which a particular heterology is placed, the observed strand bias is not due to asymmetry imposed on the heteroduplex by the extrahelical DNA segment. Strand-specific repair by this system requires ATP and the four dNTPs and is inhibited by aphidicolin. Repair is independent of the mismatch repair proteins MSH2, MSH6, MLH1, and PMS2 and occurs by a mechanism that is distinct from that of the conventional mismatch repair system. Large heterology repair in nuclear extracts of human cells is also independent of the XPF gene product, and extracts of Chinese hamster ovary cells deficient in the ERCC1 and ERCC4 gene products also support the reaction.  (+info)

Mismatch repair and differential sensitivity of mouse and human cells to methylating agents. (2/1695)

The long-patch mismatch repair pathway contributes to the cytotoxic effect of methylating agents and loss of this pathway confers tolerance to DNA methylation damage. Two methylation-tolerant mouse cell lines were identified and were shown to be defective in the MSH2 protein by in vitro mismatch repair assay. A normal copy of the human MSH2 gene, introduced by transfer of human chromosome 2, reversed the methylation tolerance. These mismatch repair defective mouse cells together with a fibroblast cell line derived from an MSH2-/- mouse, were all as resistant to N-methyl-N-nitrosourea as repair-defective human cells. Although long-patch mismatch repair-defective human cells were 50- to 100-fold more resistant to methylating agents than repair-proficient cells, loss of the same pathway from mouse cells conferred only a 3-fold increase. This discrepancy was accounted for by the intrinsic N-methyl-N-nitrosourea resistance of normal or transformed mouse cells compared with human cells. The >20-fold differential resistance between mouse and human cells could not be explained by the levels of either DNA methylation damage or the repair enzyme O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase. The resistance of mouse cells to N-methyl-N-nitrosourea was selective and no cross-resistance to unrelated DNA damaging agents was observed. Pathways of apoptosis were apparently intact and functional after exposure to either N-methyl-N-nitrosourea or ultraviolet light. Extracts of mouse cells were found to perform 2-fold less long-patch mismatch repair. The reduced level of mismatch repair may contribute to their lack of sensitivity to DNA methylation damage.  (+info)

MSH3 deficiency is not sufficient for a mutator phenotype in Chinese hamster ovary cells. (3/1695)

In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the mutS homolog protein products MSH3 and MSH6, each in cooperation with MSH2, play well-defined and specific roles in the repair of DNA mismatches and nucleotide loops. The discrete functions of the human homologs hMSH3 and hMSH6 are less clear and current evidence suggests that the substrate specificity of these proteins may be less strict. To determine the role of MSH3 in mammalian mismatch repair, we employed MSH3-deficient Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell lines. No significant changes in mutation rate were detected in the MSH3-deficient strain and there were no differences in sensitivity to DNA-damaging agents. Further analysis of hprt mutants did not show a MSH3-dependent shift in the mutant spectrum. Interestingly, thorough examination of four dinucleotide microsatellite regions revealed instability at only one locus in one of the MSH3-deficient cell lines. These data support the idea of a high degree of redundancy in the function of the MutS homologs MSH3 and MSH6, at least with respect to the control of microsatellite instability.  (+info)

Mouse MutS-like protein Msh5 is required for proper chromosome synapsis in male and female meiosis. (4/1695)

Members of the mammalian mismatch repair protein family of MutS and MutL homologs have been implicated in postreplicative mismatch correction and chromosome interactions during meiotic recombination. Here we demonstrate that mice carrying a disruption in MutS homolog Msh5 show a meiotic defect, leading to male and female sterility. Histological and cytological examination of prophase I stages in both sexes revealed an extended zygotene stage, characterized by impaired and aberrant chromosome synapsis, that was followed by apoptotic cell death. Thus, murine Msh5 promotes synapsis of homologous chromosomes in meiotic prophase I.  (+info)

Mutator phenotypes of yeast strains heterozygous for mutations in the MSH2 gene. (5/1695)

Heterozygosity for germ-line mutations in the DNA mismatch repair gene MSH2 predisposes humans to cancer. Here we use a highly sensitive reporter to describe a spontaneous mutator phenotype in diploid yeast cells containing a deletion of only one MSH2 allele. We also identify five MSH2 missense mutations that have dominant mutator effects in heterozygous cells when expressed at normal levels from the natural MSH2 promoter. For example, a 230-fold mutator effect is observed in an MSH2/msh2 diploid strain in which Gly693, which is invariant in MutS homologs and involved in ATP hydrolysis, is changed to alanine. DNA binding data suggest that mismatch repair is suppressed by binding of a mutant Msh2-Msh6 heterodimer to a mismatch with subsequent inability to dissociate from the mismatch in the presence of ATP. A dominant mutator effect also is observed in yeast when Gly693 is changed to serine. An early onset colorectal tumor is heterozygous for the analogous Gly --> Ser mutation in hMSH2, and a second hMSH2 mutation was not found, suggesting that this missense mutation may predispose to cancer via a dominant mutator effect. The mutator effects of the deletion mutant and the Gly --> Ala missense mutant in yeast MSH2 are enhanced by heterozygosity for a missense mutation in DNA polymerase delta that reduces its proofreading activity but is not a mutator in the heterozygous state. The synergistic effects of heterozygosity for mutations in two different genes that act in series to correct replication errors may be relevant to cancer predisposition.  (+info)

Hypermutation in Ig V genes from mice deficient in the MLH1 mismatch repair protein. (6/1695)

During somatic hypermutation of Ig V genes, mismatched nucleotide substitutions become candidates for removal by the DNA mismatch repair pathway. Previous studies have shown that V genes from mice deficient for the MSH2 and PMS2 mismatch repair proteins have frequencies of mutation that are comparable with those from wild-type (wt) mice; however, the pattern of mutation is altered. Because the absence of MSH2 and PMS2 produced different mutational spectra, we examined the role of another protein involved in mismatch repair, MLH1, on the frequency and pattern of hypermutation. MLH1-deficient mice were immunized with oxazolone Ag, and splenic B cells were analyzed for mutations in their V kappa Ox1 light chain genes. Although the frequency of mutation in MLH1-deficient mice was twofold lower than in wt mice, the pattern of mutation in Mlh1-/- clones was similar to wt clones. These findings suggest that the MLH1 protein has no direct effect on the mutational spectrum.  (+info)

Are adaptive mutations due to a decline in mismatch repair? The evidence is lacking. (7/1695)

The levels of proteins required for methyl-directed mismatch repair appear to decline in stationary-phase and nutritionally-deprived cells of Escherichia coli. It has been hypothesized that error-correction by the system also declines, and this decline is responsible for adaptive or stationary-phase mutations. However, evidence in support of this hypothesis is lacking. The mismatch repair system is no less effective in correcting errors during prolonged selection than it is during growth. Furthermore, mismatch repair proteins supplied in excess reduce both growth-dependent and adaptive mutation.  (+info)

MED1, a novel human methyl-CpG-binding endonuclease, interacts with DNA mismatch repair protein MLH1. (8/1695)

The DNA mismatch repair (MMR) is a specialized system, highly conserved throughout evolution, involved in the maintenance of genomic integrity. To identify novel human genes that may function in MMR, we employed the yeast interaction trap. Using the MMR protein MLH1 as bait, we cloned MED1. The MED1 protein forms a complex with MLH1, binds to methyl-CpG-containing DNA, has homology to bacterial DNA repair glycosylases/lyases, and displays endonuclease activity. Transfection of a MED1 mutant lacking the methyl-CpG-binding domain (MBD) is associated with microsatellite instability (MSI). These findings suggest that MED1 is a novel human DNA repair protein that may be involved in MMR and, as such, may be a candidate eukaryotic homologue of the bacterial MMR endonuclease, MutH. In addition, these results suggest that cytosine methylation may play a role in human DNA repair.  (+info)

Heterodimerizes with Pms2 to form MutL alpha, a component of the post-replicative DNA mismatch repair system (MMR). DNA repair is initiated by MutS alpha (Msh2-Msh6) or MutS beta (Msh2-Msh6) binding to a dsDNA mismatch, then MutL alpha is recruited to the heteroduplex. Assembly of the MutL-MutS-heteroduplex ternary complex in presence of RFC and PCNA is sufficient to activate endonuclease activity of Pms2. It introduces single-strand breaks near the mismatch and thus generates new entry points for the exonuclease EXO1 to degrade the strand containing the mismatch. DNA methylation would prevent cleavage and therefore assure that only the newly mutated DNA strand is going to be corrected. MutL alpha (Mlh1-Pms2) interacts physically with the clamp loader subunits of DNA polymerase III, suggesting that it may play a role to recruit the DNA polymerase III to the site of the MMR. Also implicated in DNA damage signaling, a process which induces cell cycle arrest and can lead to apoptosis in case of major DNA

Involved in DNA mismatch repair (MMR), correcting insertion-deletion loops (IDLs) resulting from DNA replication, DNA damage or from recombination events between non-identical sequences during meiosis. Component of a MutL heterodimer with MLH1, which probably forms a ternary complex with the MutSbeta heterodimer that initially recognizes the DNA mismatches. This complex is thought to be responsible for directing the downsteam MMR events, including strand discrimination, excision, and resynthesis. Plays a role in the repair of heteroduplex sites present in meiotic recombination intermediates and is involved in maintaining the genetic stability of simple sequence repeats by correction of frameshift intermediates.
DNA mismatch repair (MMR) is a highly conserved mutation avoidance mechanism that corrects DNA polymerase misincorporation errors. In initial steps in MMR, Msh2-Msh6 binds mispairs and small insertion/deletion loops, and Msh2-Msh3 binds larger insertion/deletion loops. The msh2Δ1 mutation, which del …
TY - JOUR. T1 - Inhibition of Msh6 ATPase Activity by Mispaired DNA Induces a Msh2(ATP)-Msh6(ATP) State Capable of Hydrolysis-Independent Movement along DNA. AU - Mazur, Dan J.. AU - Mendillo, Marc L.. AU - Kolodner, Richard D.. PY - 2006/4/7. Y1 - 2006/4/7. N2 - The Msh2-Msh6 heterodimer plays a key role in the repair of mispaired bases in DNA. Critical to its role in mismatch repair is the ATPase activity that resides within each subunit. Here we show that both subunits can simultaneously bind ATP and identify the Msh6 subunit as containing the high-affinity ATP binding site and Msh2 as containing a high-affinity ADP binding site. Stable binding of ATP to Msh6 causes decreased affinity of Msh2 for ADP, and binding to mispaired DNA stabilized the binding of ATP to Msh6. Our results support a model in which mispair binding encourages a dual-occupancy state with ATP bound to Msh6 and Msh2; this state supports hydrolysis-independent sliding along DNA.. AB - The Msh2-Msh6 heterodimer plays a key ...
A simple genetic system has been developed to test the effect of over-expression of wild-type or mutated human MutL homologue 1 (hMLH1) proteins on methyl-directed mismatch repair (MMR) in Escherichia coli. The system relies on detection of Lac+ revertants using MMR-proficient or MMR-deficient E. coli strains carrying a lac +1 frameshift mutation expressing hMLH1 proteins. We report that expression of wild-type hMLH1 protein causes an approx. 19-fold increase in mutation rates. The mutator phenotype was due to the ability of hMLH1 protein to interact with bacterial MutL and MutS proteins, thereby interfering with the formation of complexes between MMR proteins and mismatched DNA. Conversely, expression of proteins encoded by alleles deriving from hereditary-non-polyposis-colon-cancer (HNPCC) families decreases mutation rates, depending on the specific amino acid substitutions. These effects parallel the MutL-and MutS-binding and ATP-binding/hydrolysis activities of the mutated proteins.. ...

A single-molecule detection setup based on total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy has been used to investigate association and dissociation kinetics of unlabeled 30mer DNA strands. Single-molecule sensitivity was accomplished by letting unlabeled DNA target strands mediate the binding of DNA-modified and fluorescently labeled liposomes to a DNA-modified surface. The liposomes, acting as signal enhancer elements, enabled the number of binding events as well as the residence time for high affinity binders (K-d | 1 nM, k(off) | 0.01 s(-1)) to be collected under equilibrium conditions at low pM concentrations. The mismatch discrimination obtained from the residence time data was shown to be concentration and temperature independent in intervals of 1-100 pM and 23-46 degrees C, respectively. This suggests the method as a robust means for detection of point mutations at low target concentrations in, for example, single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analysis.
Locked Nucleic Acid (LNA) was first described by Wengel and co-workers in 19981 as a novel class of conformationally restricted oligonucleotide analogues. LNA is a bicyclic nucleic acid where a ribonucleoside is linked between the 2-oxygen and the 4-carbon atoms with a methylene unit. Oligonucleotides containing LNA exhibit unprecedented thermal stabilities towards complementary DNA and RNA2, which allows excellent mismatch discrimination. In fact, the high binding affinity of LNA oligos allows for the use of short probes in, for example, SNP genotyping3, allele specific PCR and mRNA sample preparation. LNA is recommended for use in any hybridization assay that requires high specificity and/or reproducibility, e.g., dual labelled probes, in situ hybridization probes, molecular beacons and PCR primers. Furthermore, LNA offers the possibility to adjust Tm values of primers and probes in multiplex assays. LNA can be mixed with DNA and RNA, as well as other nucleic acid analogues, modifiers and ...
First, the effects of intervening mismatches on DNA structure, dynamics and DNA charge transport reactivity is examined. The pi?stacked DNA base pairs mediate charge transport chemistry over long molecular distances in a reaction that is exquisitely sensitive to DNA sequence dependent conformation and dynamics. To examine the long-range charge transport as a function of intervening base mismatches, a series of DNA oligonucleotides were synthesized that incorporate a ruthenium intercalator, [Ru(phen)(bpy?)(dppz)]2+ (phen = 1,10 phenanthroline; bpy = 4-butyric acid-4-methylbipyridine; dppz = dipyrido[3,2-a:2,3-c]phenazine) linked covalently to the 5 terminus of one strand and containing two 5-GG-3 sites in the complementary strand. Single base mismatches were introduced between the two guanine doublet steps, and the efficiency of transport through the mismatches was determined through measurements of the ratio of oxidative damage at the guanine doublets distal versus proximal to the ...
In the present study, we have extended our prior analysis of 71 suspected Lynch syndrome cases as defined by a diversity of clinical criteria for MMR defects using methods that had not been previously applied to these cases. This extensive analysis has yielded several key results. First, among the 28 clearly MMR-defective cases as evidenced by their MSI-H signature, it was possible to link 27 of the cases (96%) to a defect in a known MMR gene, and in most of these cases, it was possible to identify the underlying mutation at the DNA level. This is arguably the highest or among the highest frequencies reported ( 4, 5, 21). Second, consistent with previous experience, the vast majority of mutations detected (97%) were in the MSH2 or MLH1 genes with only one mutation in PMS2 and no mutations in MSH6 detected ( 4- 6). Third, we detected mutations in cases where tumor samples were not available at the same frequency as in cases where tumor samples were available. Fourth, our ability to detect ...

Temperature-gradient gel electrophoresis (TGGE) was employed to determine the thermal stabilities of 48 DNA fragments that differ by single base pair mismatches. The approach provides a rapid way for studying how specific base mismatches effect the stability of a long DNA fragment. Homologous 373 bp DNA fragments differing by single base pair substitutions in their first melting domain were employed. Heteroduplexes were formed by melting and reannealing pairs of DNAs, one of which was ³²P-labeled on its 5-end. Product DNAs were separated based on their thermal stability by parallel and perpendicular temperature-gradient gel electrophoresis. The order of stability was determined for all common base pairs and mismatched bases in four different nearest neighbor environments; d(GXT) d(AYC), d(GXG) d(CYC), d(CXA) d(TYG), and d(TXT) * d(AYA) with X,Y = A,T,C, or G. DNA fragments containing a single mismatch were destabilized by 1 to 5°C with respect to homologous DNAs with complete Watson - Crick ...
All cells are unavoidably exposed to chemicals that can alkylate DNA to form genotoxic damage. Among the various DNA lesions formed, O6-alkylguanine lesions can be highly cytotoxic, and we recently demonstrated that O6-methylguanine (O6MeG) and O6-chloroethylguanine (O6CEG) specifically initiate apoptosis in hamster cells. Here we show, in both hamster and human cells, that the MutSα branch of the DNA mismatch repair pathway (but not the MutSβ branch) is absolutely required for signaling the initiation of apoptosis in response to O6MeGs and is partially required for signaling apoptosis in response to O6CEGs. Further, O6MeG lesions signal the stabilization of the p53 tumor suppressor, and such signaling is also MutSα-dependent. Despite this, MutSα-dependent apoptosis can be executed in a p53-independent manner. DNA mismatch repair status did not influence the response of cells to other inducers of p53 and apoptosis. Thus, it appears that mismatch repair status, rather than p53 status, is a strong
Mutations in DNA have far ranging consequences, from driving evolution to causing disease. DNA mismatch repair is a highly conserved process that maintains the fidelity of genomes by decreasing the mutation rate 100- to 1000-fold (Kunkel and Erie 2005). Mismatch repair proteins detect helical distortions or mismatches derived from exposure to mutagens (Stojic et al. 2004) during inexact replication of the genome (Hsieh and Yamane 2008) and upon recombination of nonidentical DNA molecules (Surtees et al. 2004). If the damaged or mismatched DNA is not repaired, and a new round of replication is initiated, the mutation becomes stably incorporated into the genome.. Lynch syndrome is a prevalent hereditary cancer syndrome caused by defects in DNA mismatch repair (Lynch et al. 2009). Individuals with Lynch syndrome are typically heterozygous for either MSH2 or MLH1, core components of DNA mismatch repair (Silva et al. 2009). As part of the disease process, the sole wild-type copy of the mismatch ...
The DNA mismatch repair (MMR) system is necessary for the maintenance of genomic stability. The MMR system promotes genomic fidelity by repairing base-base mismatches, insertion-deletion loops (IDLs) and heterologies generated during DNA replication and recombination. Failure to accomplish these functions may lead to cancer and are associated with tumor prone phenotypes.

While MutS and MutL are essential for performing the initial and steps of the route, those are missing in many Archaea, most Actinobacteria, and other prokaryotes. However, these organisms exhibit similar spontaneous mutation rates to those bearing the MMR proteins. We have reported NucS, as an endonuclease involved in Mismatch repair (MMR) with no structural homology to known MMR factors. By genetic screenings we found [1] that this protein is required for mutation avoidance and anti-recombination, hallmarks of the canonical MMR in the surrogate model Mycobacterium smegmatis, lacking classical MutS-MutL factors. Furthermore, phenotypic analysis of naturally occurring polymorphic NucS in a M. smegmatis surrogate model, suggests the existence of M. tuberculosis mutator strains. Structural bioinformatics coupled to evolutionary studies of NucS indicate a complex making-up ...
We have engineered a mutant of HIV Reverse Transcriptase that can be fluorescently labeled by covalent attachment of the environmentally sensitive fluorophore 7-diethylamino-3-((((2-maleimidyl)ethyl)amino)carbonyl)coumarin (MDCC). The result is a polymerase that is kinetically indistinguishable from the wild-type enzyme, but provides a signal to monitor changes in enzyme structure that result from conformational changes induced by substrate binding. Using this system, we have expanded the kinetic model governing nucleotide binding to include an enzymatic isomerization following initial nucleotide binding. In doing so, we define the role of induced-fit in nucleotide specificity and mismatch discrimination. Additionally, we have characterized the kinetics governing the specificity and discrimination of several widely administered Nucleotide Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors (NRTIs) used to combat HIV infection including 3TC (Lamivudine), FTC (Emtricitabine), and AZT (Zidovudine) for the wild-type ...

DNA mismatch repair (MMR) corrects replication errors in newly synthesized DNA. It also has an antirecombination action on heteroduplexes that contain similar but not identical sequences. This review focuses on the genetics and development of MMR and not on the latest biochemical mechanisms. The main focus is on MMR in Escherichia coli, but examples from Streptococcuspneumoniae and Bacillussubtilis have also been included. In most organisms, only MutS (detects mismatches) and MutL (an endonuclease) and a single exonucleaseare present. How this system discriminates between newlysynthesized and parental DNA strands is not clear. In E. coli and its relatives, however, Dam methylation is an integral part of MMR and is the basis for strand discrimination. A dedicated site-specific endonuclease, MutH, is present, andMutL has no endonuclease activity; four exonucleases can participate in MMR. Although it might seem that the accumulated wealth of genetic and biochemical data has given us a detailed picture of
Using the reporter plasmid where MMR can restore functional EGFP gene by repairing T:G mismatch in the start codon ( 11), we showed that BCR/ABL kinase inhibits MMR activity. T:G mismatch was chosen because it might lead to T→C transition detected in ∼25% of bcr/abl mutations in CML stem cell-enriched populations and be responsible for imatinib-resistant BCR/ABL kinase variants, for example, Y253H and M351T ( 16).. T:G mismatch could be repaired by MMR or a mismatch-specific thymidine DNA glycosylase (TDG; ref. 17). However, only MMR-dependent pathway would create T:A match if the G is located in the antisense strand, restore the EGFP start codon, and induce EGFP expression. Repair of T:G mismatch by TDG would create the C:G fixed mutation in the EGFP start codon that prevents expression of the protein.. Reduced MMR activity reported in leukemia cells was usually associated with down-regulation/loss of at least one of the MMR proteins ( 18). However, expression of MSH2, MSH6, MLH1, and PMS2 ...
DNA mismatch repair (MMR) is a highly conserved biological pathway that plays a key role in maintaining genomic stability. MMR corrects DNA mismatches generated during DNA replication, thereby preventing mutations from becoming permanent in dividing cells. MMR also suppresses homologous recombination and was recently shown to play a role in DNA damage signaling. Defects in MMR are associated with genome-wide instability, predisposition to certain types of cancer including HNPCC, resistance to certain chemotherapeutic agents, and abnormalities in meiosis and sterility in mammalian systems. The Escherichia coli MMR pathway has been extensively studied and is well characterized. In E. coli, the mismatch-activated MutS-MutL-ATP complex licenses MutH to incise the nearest unmethylated GATC sequence. UvrD and an exonuclease generate a gap. This gap is filled by pol III and DNA ligase. The GATC sites are then methylated by Dam. Several human MMR proteins have been identified based on their homology to ...

Neither median progression-free survival (PFS) nor median overall survival (OS) has yet been reached (median follow-up time of 12.5 months; Fig. 1), and the study is ongoing. However, the estimates of PFS at 1 and 2 years were 64% and 53%, respectively. The estimates of OS at 1 and 2 years were 76% and 64%, respectively, which is markedly higher than expected considering the advanced state of disease in this cohort (21). The PFS and OS were not significantly different in patients with colorectal cancers relative to those with other cancer types (fig. S1). Neither PFS [hazard ratio (HR) = 1.2 (95% CI, 0.582 to 2.512); P = 0.61] or OS [HR = 1.71 (95% CI, 0.697 to 4.196); P = 0.24] were influenced by tumors associated with Lynch syndrome..

N2 - Primary genetic factors are etiologic in at least 5-10% of patients with colon cancer. The polyposis syndromes (FPC) are easily identified examples because of the spectacular number of polyps. The hereditary nonpolyposis syndromes (HNPCC), although five times more common than FPC, are usually not recognized because they do not have such a distinctive clinical, premonitory genetic marker. Colorectal cancer expression was surveyed in 10 extended, thoroughly documented HNPCC kindreds. One hundred sixteen patients were found to have 183 colorectal cancers. Despite the striking family history, less than 5% were correctly treated by subtotal colectomy. This provided a ...
Abstract: ABSTRACT:Objective To gain an insight into the large intragenic hMSH2 and hMLH1 deletions in Chinese hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer(HNPCC)families. Method The large intragenic hMSH2 and hMLH1 deletions in 17 probands of HNPCC families were detected with multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification(MLPA)and GeneMapper techniques. Results Three large intragenic hMSH2 deletions of exon 8, exon 1-6, and exon 1-7 were found in three families respectively, and no hMLH1 deletion was found. The deletions accounted for 19% of the total hMSH2 and hMLH1 germline pathogenic mutations. Conclusions The incidence of large intragenic mismatch repair(MMR) genes deletions is relatively higher in Chinese families, and hMSH2 deletions may be more common. It is necessary to detect the large intragenic MMR genes deletions in the molecular detection of HNPCC. Key words: dereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer, larce intracenic deletion, multiplex lication-dependent probe ...
Background Malignant melanoma (MM) is the most aggressive skin cancer. Most MMs are sporadic, and in this setting an association with mismatch repair (MMR) gene mutations, typical of hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) tumours, has been proposed.. Objectives To characterize clinically and/or by molecular biology the patients with MM belonging to a cohort of 60 kindreds with HNPCC.. Methods Patients with HNPCC with a diagnosis of MM were studied by immunohistochemistry (IHC) on tumour tissue using antibodies to MLH1, MSH2, p16, β-catenin and E-cadherin, and by direct sequencing of MMR genes on germline DNA, and BRAF and NRAS on somatic DNA extracted from MM.. Results Nine cutaneous MMs were detected in the tumour spectrum of eight families with HNPCC. The median age at diagnosis was 46 years. In one HNPCC family the diagnosis of MM was made in two first-degree relatives fitting the clinical definition of familial melanoma. IHC and sequencing analysis showed an MSH2 mutation in one ...

The MutS homologue 6 protein (MSH6) is a member of the MutS homolog family required in the DNA mismatch repair system (1). MSH6 forms a MutS alpha dimer with MSH2, binding to DNA mismatches to initiate DNA repair (2). MutS alpha bends the DNA helix and recognizes single base mismatches and dinucleotide insertion-deletion loops in the DNA (2). Heterozygous mutations in the MSH6 gene are a cause of hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC), forming a specific mispair binding complex with MSH3 (3, 4). The frequency of MSH6 mutation is higher in HNPCC than in atypical HNPCC (5). The MSH2/MSH6 dimer may also play a role in DNA homologous recombination repair (2 ...

Expression of DNA mismatch repair proteins hMSH2 and hMLH1 and the cyclin G1 inhibitor, p21(waf1/cip1) in pediatric tumors: correlation with response to therapy
Repair rates of mismatched nucleotides located at an activating hotspot of mutation, H-ras codon 12, have been analyzed in vivo in mammalian cells. Repair rates at codon 12 are significantly improved in cells synchronized to the G1 stage of the mammalian cell cycle as compared with non-synchronous cells, demonstrating that mismatch repair mechanisms are active in G1. Repair rates in non-synchronous cells for the same mismatches at a nearby non-hotspot of mutation, H-ras codon 10, are also significantly improved over repair rates at codon 12 in non-synchronous cells, demonstrating that DNA mismatch repair rates can differ depending on the sequence context. These results suggest that inefficiencies in mismatch repair are responsible, at least in part, for the well documented hotspot of mutation at codon 12. Further experiments involving gel-shift analysis demonstrate a mismatch-specific binding factor for which the degree of binding correlates with in vivo repair rates for each mismatch tested at ...
The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae encodes a set of genes that show strong amino acid sequence similarity to MutS and MutL, proteins required for mismatch repair in Escherichia coli. We examined the role of MSH2 and PMS1, yeast homologs of mutS and mutL, respectively, in the repair of base pair mismatches formed during meiotic recombination. By using specifically marked HIS4 and ARG4 alleles, we showed that msh2 mutants displayed a severe defect in the repair of all base pair mismatches as well as 1-, 2- and 4-bp insertion/deletion mispairs. The msh2 and pms1 phenotypes were indistinguishable, suggesting that the wild-type gene products act in the same repair pathway. A comparison of gene conversion events in wild-type and msh2 mutants indicated that mismatch repair plays an important role in genetic recombination. (1) Tetrad analysis at five different loci revealed that, in msh2 mutants, the majority of aberrant segregants displayed a sectored phenotype, consistent with a failure to repair ...
Some families with mutations in HNPCC-related genes may be tested even though they may not have all of the above characteristics. Genetic testing for Lynch syndrome should only be done after you and your doctor feel sure that it is the best thing for you and your family. It should be done by an expert counselor who can help you understand the results and what they may mean to you and your family.. The majority of Lynch syndrome cases are caused by mutations in one of several mismatch-repair genes. These mismatch-repair genes help correct spelling errors in DNA that happen during the cell division process. When these genes are altered, or mutated, then the spelling errors in the DNA cannot be repaired.. These errors in the DNA can lead to uncontrolled cell growth, which causes cancer. In Lynch syndrome, the germline mutation may be inherited from either the mother or the father and is present in all cells of the body. Whether a person who is born with a germline mutation will develop cancer, ...
Germline mutation of DNA mismatch repair (MMR) genes is a cause of Lynch syndrome. Methylation of MutL homolog 1 (MLH1) and MutS homolog 2 (MSH2) has been detected in peripheral blood cells of patients with colorectal cancer. This methylation is referred to as epimutation. Methylation of these genes has not been studied in an unselected series of endometrial cancer cases. Therefore, we examined methylation of MLH1, MSH2, and MSH6 promoter regions of peripheral blood cells in 206 patients with endometrial cancer using a methylation-specific polymerase chain reaction (MSP). Germline mutation of MMR genes, microsatellite instability (MSI), and immunohistochemistry (IHC) were also analyzed in each case with epimutation. MLH1 epimutation was detected in a single patient out of a total of 206 (0.49%)-1 out of 58 (1.72%) with an onset age of less than 50 years. The patient with MLH1 epimutation showed high level MSI (MSI-H), loss of MLH1 expression and had developed endometrial cancer at 46 years old,
Two mutations in the DNA mismatch repair gene MLH1, referred to as mutations 1 and 2, are frequent among Finnish kindreds with hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC). In order to assess the ages and origins of these mutations, we constructed a map of 15 microsatellite markers around MLH1 and used this information in haplotype analyses of 19 kindreds with mutation 1 and 6 kindreds with mutation 2. All kindreds with mutation 1 showed a single allele for the intragenic marker D3S1611 that was not observed on any unaffected chromosome. They also shared portions of a haplotype of 4-15 markers encompassing 2.0-19.0 cM around MLH1. All kindreds with mutation 2 shared another allele for D3S1611 and a conserved haplotype of 5-14 markers spanning 2.0-15.0 cM around MLH1. The degree of haplotype conservation was used to estimate the ages of these two mutations. While some recessive disease genes have been estimated to have existed and spread for as long as thousands of generations worldwide and ...

Replication error deficient (RER+) colorectal cancers are a distinct subset of colorectal cancers, characterized by inactivation of the DNA mismatch repair system. These cancers are typically pseudodiploid, accumulate mutations in repetitive sequences as a result of their mismatch repair deficiency, and have distinct pathologies. Regulatory sequences controlling all aspects of mRNA processing, especially including message stability, are found in the 3UTR sequence of most genes. The relevant sequences are typically A/U-rich elements or U repeats. Microarray analysis of 14 RER+ (deficient) and 16 RER- (proficient) colorectal cancer cell lines confirms a striking difference in expression profiles. Analysis of the incidence of mononucleotide repeat sequences in the 3UTRs, 5UTRs, and coding sequences of those genes most differentially expressed in RER+ versus RER- cell lines has shown that much of this differential expression can be explained by the occurrence of a massive enrichment of genes with 3UTR T

FUNCTION: Component of the post-replicative DNA mismatch repair system (MMR). Heterodimerizes with MSH2 to form MutS alpha, which binds to DNA mismatches thereby initiating DNA repair. MSH6 provides substrate-binding and substrate-specificity to the complex. When bound, MutS alpha bends the DNA helix and shields approximately 20 base pairs. Acts mainly to repair base-base and single insertion-deletion mismatches that occur during replication, but can also repair longer insertion-deletion loops (IDLs), although with decreasing efficiency as the size of the extrahelical loop increases. After mismatch binding, forms a ternary complex with the MutL alpha heterodimer, which is thought to be responsible for directing the downstream MMR events, including strand discrimination, excision, and resynthesis. ATP binding and hydrolysis by the MutS alpha complex is crucial for MMR. Both subunits bind ATP, but with differing affinities, and their ATPase kinetics are also very different. MSH6 binds and ...

2017 - English Colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is one of the most prevalent malignancies in the Czech Republic. In general, there are two molecular pathways leading to CRC: one is characterized by chromosomal instability, the other by the deficiency in DNA mismatch repair (MMR) genes. MutL homologue 1 (MLH1) gene, a member of the MMR gene-family, represents a key component of the MMR system, responsible for recognition of nucleotide mismatches occurring during DNA replication, and for the recruitment of repair proteins to correct the replication errors. According to literature, somatic mutations in MMR genes, and MLH1 in particular, hallmark sporadic, MMR deficient, CRC cases. We aimed at analyzing somatic events in MLH1 gene and the determination of microsatellite instability (MSI) status in 99 DNA samples from 96 patients with sporadic CRC. Mutations were screened by high resolution melting (HRM) curve analysis. Positive cases in each run were subsequently verified by automated sequencing. Mainly ...

Immune specific markers were used to evaluate each specimen for the number ...
Heterodimerizes with PMS2 to form MutL alpha, acomponent of the post-replicative DNA mismatch repair system(MMR). DNA repair is initiated by MutS alpha (MSH2-MSH6) or MutSbeta (MSH2-MSH3) binding to a dsDNA mismatch, then MutL alpha isrecruited to the heteroduplex. Assembly of the MutL-MutS-heteroduplex ternary complex in presence of RFC and PCNA issufficient to activate endonuclease activity of PMS2. Itintroduces single-strand breaks near the mismatch and thusgenerates new entry points for the exonuclease EXO1 to degrade thestrand containing the mismatch. DNA methylation would preventcleavage and therefore assure that only the newly mutated DNAstrand is going to be corrected. MutL alpha (MLH1-PMS2) interactsphysically with the clamp loader subunits of DNA polymerase III,suggesting that it may play a role to recruit the DNA polymeraseIII to the site of the MMR. Also implicated in DNA damagesignaling, a process which induces cell cycle arrest and can leadto apoptosis in case of major DNA damages. ...
We describe the effect of nearest-neighbor sequence context on mismatch-dependent activation of hMSH2-hMSH6. Examination of the intrinsic sequences that occur around symmetric mismatched nucleotides suggests little if any effect of non-nearest-neighbor base pairs on hMSH2-hMSH6 mismatch recognition and ATPase activation (20), although longer-range effects have been reported (22). Although a sequence context effect is not novel in MMR (21), the underlying mechanism is unknown. Our studies have suggested that when a significant nearest-neighbor sequence context effect is manifest, 2 × 3′-purines enhanced, and 2 × 3′-pyrimidines reduced hMSH2-hMSH6 ATPase activation (kcat). A similar trend is observed for mismatch binding (KD), whereas an inverse effect was observed for the Tm of unbound mismatched oligonucleotides. Importantly, the KD and Tm do not accurately account for hMSH2-hMSH6 ATPase activation. Interestingly, the effect of sequence context on KD appears associated with alteration of ...
