Detection of microsatellite instability by real time PCR and hybridization probe melting point analysis

Dietmaier, W. ; Hofstädter, Ferdinand



Abstract

Microsatellite alterations can be found in a number of tumors. There are two types of alterations: loss of heterozygosity (LOH), which can be detected in the majority of colorectal cancers (CRC), and microsatellite instability (MSI). MSI occurs in about 15% of CRC with a mutator phenotype and are the hallmark of hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancers (HNPCC). Furthermore, MSI can also be ...
