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.
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.. ...
SUBUNIT: Heterodimer of MLH1 and PMS1, called MutLalpha, which is the major MMR MutL activity correcting base-base mismatches as well as IDLs. The heterodimer binds double strand DNA independently of a mismatch with positive cooperativity and has more than one DNA binding site. Forms a ternary complex with either the MSH2-MSH6 (MutSalpha) or the MSH2-MSH3 heterodimer (MutSbeta), which recognize and bind to mismatch DNA. Ternary complex formation is promoted by ATP binding. Heterodimer of MLH1 and MLH3, called MutLbeta, which is involved in correction of a specific subset of IDLs when associated with MutSbeta. Heterodimer of MLH1 and MLH2 ...
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.
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 ...

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.
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 ...
These locked nucleic acid (LNA) DNA and RNA oligonucleotides have increased Tm that can be modulated to provide greater sensitivity, SNP detection, and mismatch discrimination.
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
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 ...

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,

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
GLI1 and GLI2 are upregulated in a variety of human cancers and thought to participate in the development and progression of PDAC (7). Indeed, GLI1 was shown to be indispensable for KRAS-dependent pancreatic epithelial transformation in a genetically modified mouse model (32) and essential for the survival and maintenance of the transformed phenotype of human PDAC cell lines (33). Moreover, GLI1 is known to upregulate a variety of genes crucial for many properties of cancer cells, such as CYR61 (9), MUC5AC (10), and MMP9 (11) for invasion and metastasis; ABCG2 for chemoresistance (12); SNAI1 for EMT (13); BCL2 for antiapoptosis (34); and BMI1 (15, 18) and NANOG (16) for stemness. These GLI1 target genes, together with many other targets found by comprehensive screens (20-22), highlight a pivotal role of GLI1 in cancer biology, but it was still unknown whether GLI1 might be linked to the regulation of caretaker genes, which should be important in the development and progression of cancer. In the ...

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 ...
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 ...

Peltomäki P, Olkinuora A, Nieminen TT. Introduction: Up to one third of colorectal cancers show familial clustering and 5% are hereditary single-gene disorders. Hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer comprises DNA mismatch repair-deficient and -proficient subsets, represented by Lynch syndrome (LS) and familial colorectal cancer type X (FCCTX), respectively. Accurate knowledge of molecular etiology and genotype-phenotype correlations are critical for tailored cancer prevention and treatment.. Areas covered: The authors highlight advances in the molecular dissection of hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer, based on recent literature retrieved from PubMed. Future possibilities for novel gene discoveries are discussed.. Expert commentary: LS is molecularly well established, but new information is accumulating of the associated clinical and tumor phenotypes. FCCTX remains poorly defined, but several promising candidate genes have been discovered and share some preferential biological ...
