Gene: MSH2 (mutS homolog 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MSH2
Name: mutS homolog 2
Description: Exhibits several functions, including protein C-terminus binding activity; protein homodimerization activity; and protein kinase binding activity. Contributes to several functions, including DNA binding activity; MutLalpha complex binding activity; and adenyl ribonucleotide binding activity. Involved in several processes, including DNA metabolic process; negative regulation of DNA recombination; and positive regulation of helicase activity. Localizes to the MutSalpha complex and MutSbeta complex. Implicated in Lynch syndrome (multiple); breast cancer; colorectal cancer; and urinary bladder cancer. Biomarker of breast carcinoma; cervix uteri carcinoma in situ; prostate cancer; renal cell carcinoma; and urinary bladder cancer.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
