Mutations in the STK11 (aka LKB1) gene causes Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS), which is an autosomal dominant disorder with an increased risk of various neoplasms (especially gastrointestinal and breast cancers). Sequencing and deletion/duplication analyses of the STK11 gene will identify individuals who are affected with PJS and therefore are at risk for STK11-related cancers.
