Gene: Msh6 (mutS homolog 6) Mus musculus
Symbol: Msh6
Name: mutS homolog 6
Description: Exhibits chromatin binding activity and damaged DNA binding activity. Contributes to guanine/thymine mispair binding activity. Involved in several processes, including determination of adult lifespan; intrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway in response to DNA damage; and somatic diversification of immunoglobulins. Localizes to MutSalpha complex and nuclear chromatin. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Lynch syndrome; colorectal carcinoma; endometrial cancer; and hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer type 5. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; early conceptus; liver; lung; and oocyte. Orthologous to human MSH6 (mutS homolog 6); PARTICIPATES IN altered mismatch repair pathway; colorectal cancer pathway; endometrial cancer pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
