MutL homolog 1, colon cancer, nonpolyposis type 2 (E. coli), also known as mlh1, is a human gene located on Chromosome 3. It is a gene commonly associated with hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer.

This gene was identified as a locus frequently mutated in hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer (HNPCC). It is a human homolog of the E. coli DNA mismatch repair gene, mutL, which mediates protein-protein interactions during mismatch recognition, strand discrimination, and strand removal. Defects in MLH1 are associated with the microsatellite instability (MSI) observed in HNPCC. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described, but their full-length natures have not been determined.[1]

It can also be associated with Turcot syndrome.

Interactions[edit]

MLH1 has been shown to interact with Exonuclease 1,[2] MSH4,[3] PMS2,[4][5][6] Myc,[4] Bloom syndrome protein[7][8][9][10] and MBD4.[11]
