The present study reports on the frequency of MDM2 gene amplification and MDM2 protein expression in a series of 100 breast carcinomas and its association with accumulation of the p53 protein. Of the 100 cases, frozen samples for 82 cases were available for Southern blotting. Three of the 82 (4%) demonstrated MDM2 gene amplification of up to 6-fold… CONTINUE READING
