Hereditary Cancer
Test Name: MMR Genes Promoter Methylation Detection
Test Description:In sporadic colon cancers, hypermethylation of the MLH1 gene promoter resulting in its transcriptional silencing has been observed more than mutations. Methylation analysis of MMR genes can improve the selection of patients for genetic testing in hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer (HNPCC).
Methodology:Gene Methylation analysis of MMR genes
Gene Name:N/A
Protein Name:
Specimen Requirements:EDTA Blood (5mL)
Storage Condition:Ambient Temperature / 4℃ (if overnight is needed)
