Analysis of somatic mutations at short tandem repeat loci in colorectal carcinomas
To further analyse the variability at tandem repetitive loci, we have studied somatic mutation events in a subset of four short tandem repeats (STRs or microsatellites). Pairs of human blood leukocyte and colorectal adenocarcinoma DNA were adopted as a somatic model system.
