Associated Diseases (KEGG IDs)Hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer 5 (HNPCC5) [MIM:614350]: An autosomal dominant disease associated with marked increase in cancer susceptibility. It is characterized by a familial predisposition to early-onset colorectal carcinoma (CRC) and extra-colonic tumors of the gastrointestinal, urological and female reproductive tracts. HNPCC is reported to be the most common form of inherited colorectal cancer in the Western world. Clinically, HNPCC is often divided into two subgroups. Type I is characterized by hereditary predisposition to colorectal cancer, a young age of onset, and carcinoma observed in the proximal colon. Type II is characterized by increased risk for cancers in certain tissues such as the uterus, ovary, breast, stomach, small intestine, skin, and larynx in addition to the colon. Diagnosis of classical HNPCC is based on the Amsterdam criteria: 3 or more relatives affected by colorectal cancer, one a first degree relative of the other two; 2 or more generation affected; 1 or more colorectal cancers presenting before 50 years of age; exclusion of hereditary polyposis syndromes. The term 'suspected HNPCC' or 'incomplete HNPCC' can be used to describe families who do not or only partially fulfill the Amsterdam criteria, but in whom a genetic basis for colon cancer is strongly suspected. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10480359, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10521294, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11586295, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12658575, ECO:0000269|PubMed:14974087, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15365995, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21120944, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22102614, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9354786}. The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.; Endometrial cancer (ENDMC) [MIM:608089]: A malignancy of endometrium, the mucous lining of the uterus. Most endometrial cancers are adenocarcinomas, cancers that begin in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:11153917, ECO:0000269|PubMed:14961575}. Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.; Mismatch repair cancer syndrome (MMRCS) [MIM:276300]: An autosomal recessive, rare, childhood cancer predisposition syndrome encompassing a broad tumor spectrum. This includes hematological malignancies, central nervous system tumors, Lynch syndrome-associated malignancies such as colorectal tumors as well as multiple intestinal polyps, embryonic tumors and rhabdomyosarcoma. Multiple cafe-au-lait macules, a feature reminiscent of neurofibromatosis type 1, are often found as first manifestation of the underlying cancer. Areas of skin hypopigmentation have also been reported in MMRCS patients. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:17557300}. The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.; Colorectal cancer (CRC) [MIM:114500]: A complex disease characterized by malignant lesions arising from the inner wall of the large intestine (the colon) and the rectum. Genetic alterations are often associated with progression from premalignant lesion (adenoma) to invasive adenocarcinoma. Risk factors for cancer of the colon and rectum include colon polyps, long-standing ulcerative colitis, and genetic family history. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10413423, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10537275, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10699937, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11153917, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11470537, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11709755, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11807791, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12522549, ECO:0000269|PubMed:14520694, ECO:0000269|PubMed:14961575, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15483016, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22102614}.

General Description of MSH6 .
MSH6 is a heterodimer of MSH2 and binds to DNA containing G/T mismatches. The MSH2-MSH6 complex recognizes a single-base mispair insertion/deletion loop. An alteration of microsatellite repeats is the result of slippage owing to strand misalignment during DNA replication and is referred to as microsatellite instability (MSI). These defects in DNA repair pathways have been related to human carcinogenesis. Studies have shown the mutations of MLH-1, MSH2 and MSH6 genes contribute to the development of sporadic colorectal carcinoma. The repair of mismatch DNA is essential to maintaining the integrity of genetic information over time.

MSH6 Information for Pathologists


The MSH6 gene on chromosome 2 is part of the DNA mismatch repair system. It encodes a component of the MutS family of proteins that are involved in DNA mismatch repair, and heterodimerizes with MSH2 to form the MutS alpha complex, which serves as a bidirectional molecular switch for the mismatch repair machinery. Essential features Mutations in MSH6 are associated with increased risk of colorectal cancer, hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer, Lynch syndrome and endometrial cancer. Generally lead to milder microsatellite instability.
