Mammalian cells have highly evolved and complex DNA repair systems to maintain the integrity of the genome. A series of cell cycle checkpoints exist that allow the opportunity to pause for successful DNA repair, or alternatively for cell death if repair cannot be accomplished. DNA damage checkpoints occur at the boundaries between G1/S and G2/M and during S phase and mitotic spindle assembly. These checkpoints serve to protect against genetic damage that can lead to malignant transformation being fixed in the genome.

The propensity to accumulate mutations in microsatellite sequences is referred to as microsatellite instability (MSI). Some microsatellite sequences are in noncoding areas of the genome, whereas others are within genes. It is thought that the accumulation of mutations in microsatellite sequences of tumor suppressor genes may inactivate them and accelerate the process of malignant transformation. The Amsterdam and Bethesda criteria have been developed to provide clinical guidelines for the diagnosis of Lynch syndrome.
