Abstract:Mutation of the p53 tumor suppressor gene is a recurring event in a variety of human cancers. Wild-type p53 may regulate cell proliferation and has recently been shown to repress transcription from several cellular promoters. We studied the effects of wild-type and mutant human p53 on the human proliferating-cell nuclear antigen promoter and on several viral promoters including the simian virus 40 early promoter-enhancer, the herpes simplex virus type 1 thymidine kinase and UL9 promoters, the human cytomegalov… Show more
