p53 Regulation of G2 Checkpoint Is Retinoblastoma Protein Dependent
ABSTRACT In the present study, we investigated the role of p53 in G2 checkpoint function by determining the mechanism by which p53 prevents premature exit from G2 arrest after genotoxic stress. UsingExpand

p53-dependent expression of PIG3 during proliferation, genotoxic stress, and reversible growth arrest.
The p53-inducible gene 3 (PIG3) was recently identified in a screen for genes induced by p53 before the onset of apoptosis. PIG3 shares significant homology with oxidoreductases from several species.Expand
