Gene: Msh2 (mutS homolog 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Msh2
Name: mutS homolog 2
Description: Exhibits ATPase activity and DNA binding activity. Contributes to guanine/thymine mispair binding activity. Involved in several processes, including DNA metabolic process; negative regulation of cell cycle; and regulation of DNA recombination. Localizes to the MutSalpha complex. Used to study Lynch syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Lynch syndrome (multiple); breast cancer; colorectal cancer; and urinary bladder cancer. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; heart; liver; lung; and tail dorsal root ganglion. Orthologous to human MSH2 (mutS homolog 2); PARTICIPATES IN altered mismatch repair pathway; colorectal cancer pathway; mismatch repair pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,4-dinitrobenzenesulfonic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
