Brief description:  Cololrectal cancer is a major health issue. Several genes have been shown to be associated with hereditary non-polyposis colon cancer, including MSH2. In humans, this gene produces a protein that participates in one of the DNA repair mechanisms. A homolog in c. elegans appears to have a similar function and silencing the msh-2 gene is expected to have an increased frequency of mutation.
