Increased E2F1 activity induces skin tumors in mice heterozygous and nullizygous for p53.


The p16(INK4a)-cyclin D-retinoblastoma tumor suppressor pathway is disrupted in most human cancers, and it has been suggested that the subsequent release of E2F transcription factors from inhibitory complexes may be a key event in tumor development. We described recently the generation of transgenic mice with E2F1 gene expression targeted to squamous… (More)
