PMS2 Information for Pathologists
PMS2 is a component of the DNA mismatch repair system. The PMS2 gene (on chromosome 7) encodes an endonuclease that forms a heterodimer with MLH1 to form the MutL alpha complex which is activated upon recognition of DNA mismatches, insertions or deletions by MutS alpha and MutS beta heterodimers. Essential features Germ line mutations in PMS2 are associated with increased risk of colorectal cancer, hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer, Lynch syndrome, Turcot syndrome and endometrial cancer. Milder microsatellite instability (less risk of developing cancer compared to MLH1 mutations).
