    2nd Department of Medicine, University of the Saarland, Kirrberger Strasse, D 66421 Homburg Saar, Germany
    Nucleic Acids Res 31:3217-26. 2003
    ..We also examined another human homologue of bacterial MutL, hMutLbeta (hMLH1-hPMS1). We show that hMutLbeta interacts as efficiently with hMutSalpha as hMutLalpha, and that it predominantly binds to hMutSalpha via hMLH1 as well...
