Most human carcinomas of the exocrine pancreas contain mutant c-K-ras genes
Using in vitro gene amplification by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and mutation detection by the RNAase A mismatch cleavage method, we have examined c-K-ras genes in human pancreaticExpand

p53 modulation of TFIIH–associated nucleotide excision repair activity
p53 has pleiotropic functions including control of genomic plasticity and integrity. Here we report that p53 can bind to several transcription factor IIH–associated factors, includingExpand

Hepatitis B virus X protein inhibits p53 sequence-specific DNA binding, transcriptional activity, and association with transcription factor ERCC3.
Chronic active hepatitis caused by infection with hepatitis B virus, a DNA virus, is a major risk factor for human hepatocellular carcinoma. Since the oncogenicity of several DNA viruses is dependentExpand

p53-Induced Up-Regulation of MnSOD and GPx but not Catalase Increases Oxidative Stress and Apoptosis
p53-mediated apoptosis may involve the induction of redox-controlling genes, resulting in the production of reactive oxygen species. Microarray expression analysis of doxorubicin exposed, relatedExpand

Mutations and altered expression of p16INK4 in human cancer.
Cell cycle arrest at the G1 checkpoint allows completion of critical macromolecular events prior to S phase. Regulators of the G1 checkpoint include an inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinase, p16INK4;Expand

Detection of high incidence of K-ras oncogenes during human colon tumorigenesis
RNAse A mismatch cleavage analysis of 66 primary human colon tumours reveals a high incidence of K-ras genes with mutations at position 12. No apparent correlation was found between the presence ofExpand

Nitric oxide-induced p53 accumulation and regulation of inducible nitric oxide synthase expression by wild-type p53.
The tumor suppressor gene product p53 plays an important role in the cellular response to DNA damage from exogenous chemical and physical mutagens. Therefore, we hypothesized that p53 performs aExpand

The XPB and XPD DNA helicases are components of the p53-mediated apoptosis pathway.
The molecular pathway of p53-dependent apoptosis (programmed cell death) is poorly understood. Because p53 binds to the basal transcription-repair complex TFIIH and modulates its DNA helicaseExpand

Allelic frequency of a p53 polymorphism in human lung cancer.
p53 is a tumor suppressor gene that is mutated in diverse tumor types. Here we report the frequencies of common polymorphic variants at codon 72 of the p53 gene in germline DNA of lung cancer casesExpand

Detection of c-K-ras mutations in fine needle aspirates from human pancreatic adenocarcinomas.
Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue specimens obtained by fine needle aspiration of pancreatic masses from 47 patients were examined retrospectively for cytology and the presence of mutantExpand
