What is Microsatellite Instability (MSI) test?

To check whether the Lynch syndrome genes are functioning properly, MSI screening is employed. When mismatch repair is not functioning properly, microsatellites—regions of repetitive DNA—change in length (show instability). As a measure of instability, MSI testing examines the length of specific DNA microsatellites from the tumour sample to determine if they have become longer or shorter.

Why it is done?

To confirm whether the Lynch syndrome genes are correctly working, MSI screening is employed. Regions of repeating DNA called microsatellites vary in length (demonstrate instability) when mismatch repair is not functioning properly.

What is the procedure for Microsatellite Instability (MSI) test?

Multiple techniques can be utilised to identify DNA mismatch repair deficiencies or microsatellite instability (MSI) (dMMR). Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and immunohistochemistry are the two most popular techniques (IHC). The accepted gold standard approach for MSI detection is MSI testing by PCR.
