Human tumors are believed to harbor a disabled p53 tumor suppressor pathway, either through direct mutation of the p53 gene or through aberrant expression of proteins acting in the p53 pathway, such as p14(ARF) or Mdm2. A role for Mdmx (or Mdm4) as a key negative regulator of p53 function in vivo has been established. However, a direct contribution of Mdmx(More)
The stability of the p53 protein is regulated by Mdm2. By acting as an E3 ubiquitin ligase, Mdm2 directs the ubiquitylation of p53 and its subsequent degradation by the 26S proteasome. In contrast, the Mdmx protein, although structurally similar to Mdm2, cannot ubiquitylate or degrade p53 in vivo. To ascertain which domains determine this functional(More)
The p53 protein maintains genomic integrity through its ability to induce cell cycle arrest or apoptosis in response to various forms of stress. Substantial regulation of p53 activity occurs at the level of protein stability, largely determined by the activity of the Mdm2 protein. Mdm2 targets both p53 and itself for ubiquitylation and subsequent(More)

We examine the nature of galaxy clustering in redshift space using a method based on an expansion of the galaxian density eld in Spherical Harmonics and linear theory. We derive a compact and self-consistent expression for the distortion when applied to ux limited redshift surveys. The amplitude of the distortion is controlled by the combination of the(More)
