Mismatch repair endonuclease PMS2
Synonyms [1]

PMS2 postmeiotic segregation increased 2 (PMS2) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions in DNA mismatch repair. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions and insertions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, intestinal cancer, and stomach cancer.

PMS2 is altered in 1.38% of all cancers with lung adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, bladder urothelial carcinoma, breast invasive ductal carcinoma, and endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].

PMS2 GENIE Cases - Top Diseases

The most common alterations in PMS2 are PMS2 Mutation (1.29%), PMS2 Mutation (germline) (1.29%), PMS2 Amplification (0.26%), PMS2 K651R (0.03%), and PMS2 Loss (0.03%) [3].
