Distinct mdm2/p53 expression patterns in liposarcoma subgroups: implications for different pathogenetic mechanisms.

Recent findings have indicated that TP53 inactivation in sarcomas may result from mutation and/or deletion of the TP53 gene or, alternatively, from binding to the MDM2 gene products. To investigate further a possible role of the two genes in sarcomas, 24 large and deep-seated lipomas and 74 liposarcomas of various subtypes were analysed for mdm2 and p53… CONTINUE READING
