In concordance with the Msh6 deficient mouse model, LS patients with germ line mutation in MSH6 develop GI cancers at age 60 and older with variable MSI phenotypes [15]. Interestingly, both the female carriers of MSH6 germ line mutation and mice with global Msh6 deficiency develop endometrial cancer [16]. 4 MSH3 Msh3 deficient mice neither have a reduced survival or cancer phenotype, likely due to only moderate defects in MMR. These mice do develop tumors later in life, but the incidence is comparable to wild-type mice.

Two categories of MSI have been defined, based on results from PCR testing for MSI. MSI high ( MSI-H) is defined as instability in 2 or more out of 5 markers in the panels currently available [45]. MSI-H tumors share the phenotype of LS with a characteristic pathology, proximal colonic predominance and a better prognosis. About 20–30 % of these tumors come from patients with LS and the other 75–80 % arise from acquired hypermethylation of the promoter of the MLH1 gene, which does not involve germline mutation [46, 47].
