Repetitive segments of DNA between coding areas called microsatellites were found to be highly susceptible to mutation in HNPCC tumo rs: mutations in these are termed microsatellite instability (MSI). Mutation in one of the genes causing HNPCC confers a mutator phenotype which puts certain key oncogenic genes at nsk of mutation and ther·efore dysfunction.
