Among them, at least 4 primary-metastasis pairs from different patients demonstrated a microsatellite instability (MSI) phenotype with high mutation rates (7-48 mutations per Mb) and harbored functional somatic mutations in transforming growth factor, beta receptor II (70/80kDa) (TGFBR2) and BRAF which are suggestive of MSI or germline deleterious mutations in the mismatch-repairing genes mutS homolog 2 (MSH2) and mutS homolog 6 (MSH6) (18, 19) (not shown).
