P53 gene mutations in lymphoid diseases and their possible relevance to drug resistance.

Abstract

Mutations in the p53 tumor suppressor gene occur with a frequency of 12.5% in lymphoid malignancies. The viral-associated diseases, Adult T-cell Leukemia (ATL) and Burkitt's lymphoma, showed higher p53 mutation frequencies of 24% and 41%, respectively. Mutations occurred in the highly conserved regions of the p53 gene. Two new hot spots for mutation were… (More)
