Abstract: Protein p73 is a member of the p53 protein family that can induce cell cycle arrest or apoptosis by the activation of p53-responsive genes as well as p53-independent pathways. Alternative promoter usage, together with differential splicing of the C-terminal exons, forms several distinct mRNAs that are translated into corresponding protein isoforms containing different domains. While TAp73 isoforms respond to genotoxic stress in a manner similar to tumor suppressor p53, ΔTAp73 isoforms inhibit apoptosis during …
