PMS2 postmeiotic segregation increased 2 (S. cerevisiae)

On chromosome: 7p22.2
Known also as: PMSL2; HNPCC4; PMS2CL;

NCBI Gene ID: 5395
NCBI Ensembl Id: ENSG00000122512
MIM Id: (from NCBI OMIM database) 600259
Species: Homo sapiens

This gene is one of the PMS2 gene family members found in clusters on chromosome 7. The product of this gene is involved in DNA mismatch repair. It forms a heterodimer with MLH1 and this complex interacts with other complexes bound to mismatched bases. Mutations in this gene are associated with hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer, Turcot syndrome, and are a cause of supratentorial primitive neuroectodermal tumors. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq]
