Among colorectal cancer hereditary variants, two syndromes show a predisposition to the disease based on germline mutations: Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) and Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC). Aim: To screen mutations in FAP and HNPCC families in Chile. Materials and Methods: Two FAP and one HNPCC families were studied. The APC gene (for FAP patients) and the MLH1 gene (for HNPCC patients), were screened for mutations on genomic DNA. The molecular analysis was performeddoi:10.4067/s0034-98872006000700006 pmid:17130966 fatcat:tfvxwghi2nf23iw7asc4k5zkoi
