MLH1

MLH1

A human homologue of the Escherichia coli DNA mismatch repair gene on 3p21.3, which encodes an enzyme that scans newly replicated DNA for errors and repairs mismatched base pairs.

Molecular pathology
A germline mutation of MLH1 occurs in ± 1% of patients with hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer; defects in MLH1 also cause mismatch repair cancer syndrome, Muir-Torre syndrome and susceptibility to endometrial cancer.

Concurrently, the VENTANA BRAF V600E (VE1) antibody helps refine the number of patients who may receive additional testing for Lynch syndrome by aiding in the differentiation between sporadic colorectal cancer and probable Lynch syndrome in the absence of MLH1 protein expression, stated the company.
Loss of nuclear expression of MLH1 and PMS2: testing for methylation of the MLH1 promoter is indicated (the presence of MLH1 methylation suggests that the tumor is sporadic and germline evaluation is probably not indicated; absence of MLH1 methylation suggests the possibility of Lynch syndrome, and sequencing and/or large deletion/duplication testing of germline MLH1 is indicated) *

Las frecuencias de metilacion de este gen se presentan en forma heterogenea entre las diferentes publicaciones; en un estudio realizado en tumores gastricos esporadicos procedentes de 46 pacientes del norte de Brasil donde se analizo la metilacion de los genes MLH1, MSH2, MSH6 y PMS2 y se detecto una frecuencia media de metilacion del gen hMLh1 (21,74%) se ha senalado que la metilacion de este gen es heterogenea, encontrando un 20,33% en tumores no seleccionados, pero cuando separaron los esporadicos obtuvo una frecuencia de 16,4% similar a la encontrada en nuestro estudio, sin embargo no encontro diferencias significativas en relacion con el estadio del tumor.
