The −93 SNP of MLH1 gene is associated with MLH1 gene methylation in endometrial and colorectal cancers. We undertook luciferase reporter assay and electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA) to test whether the −93 SNP affects the MLH1 gene expression. The luciferase activity for −93A plasmid is significantly lower than −93G plasmid. In EMSA experiments, the −93A and −93G probes have different binding affinity to nuclear proteins of JEG3 cells. Our data indicate that −93 SNP affects MLH1 gene expression by altering protein binding to the promoter of MLH1 gene.
