Oncogenes and Tumor Suppressors Therapeutic Efficacy of p53 Restoration in Mdm2- Overexpressing Tumors

Abstract

The p53 (TP53) tumor suppressor is the most frequently mutated gene in human cancers. Restoring expression of wild-type p53 has led to tumor growth suppression in a variety of tumor models that are p53 deficient. Other mechanisms, for example, upregulation of Mdm2, exist in tumors to inactivate the p53 pathway. Mdm2, an E3 ubiquitin ligase that targets p53… (More)
