Mlh1-Deficient Mice

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. Mus musculus


  1. Resource Description
    MLH1 is one of the genes involved in DNA repair during cell division. MLH1 knock-out mice and cell lines provide a novel model to study cancer and could potentially aid in the development of new therapeutics for oncology. Licensing and collaborative research opportunities exist with respect to these biological materials. In humans, most germline mutation carriers are heterozygotes (+/-) carrying recessive MLH1 mutations in all tissues. When the other MLH1 gene is inactivated in a particular cell, in the lining of the colon for example, the mutation rate in that cell and its progenitors increases dramatically, mutations accumulate and tumors can arise.
