The role of MYH is to remove the adenine that mispairs with 8-oxoguanine, which arises due to replication of oxidized DNA. Thus, defective MYH results in an increased rate of transversion of G:C to A:T (143), and this has been observed in human colorectal cancer. Indeed, the role of MYH defects in colorectal cancer was elucidated through the observation of the high rate of G:C to A:T somatic inactivating transversions in the APC gene (136). Family members subsequently shown to carry two common missense variants, (Y165C and G382D), in MYH, which affect highly conserved residues over several species including E.
