Green List (high evidence)

Mismatch repair cancer syndrome is caused by homozygous or compound heterozygous mutation in the mismatch repair (MMR) genes MLH1 (120436), MSH2 (609309), MSH6 (600678), or PMS2 (600259). Heterozygous mutations in the MMR genes result in hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer
