Model Predicts Colon Cancer Inheritable Genetic Defects

...lyposis colorectal cancer, is characterized by the inheritance of defects in the MLH1, MSH2 and MSH6 genes. These three genes help repair mismatches that can occur during the duplication of the genetic code when new cells are made, and are known as mismatch repair (MMR) genes. Of the projected 600,000 MMR mutati...
