Conformational changes in p53 analysed using new antibodies to the core DNA binding domain of the protein.


The p53 protein contains a protease resistant core section that binds to DNA in a sequence specific manner and whose crystal structure has been determined. This core is flanked at the N-terminus by the transcriptional transactivation domain and at the C-terminus by sequences involved in the oligomerisation of the protein. Extensive immunochemical analysis… (More)
