Predominant p53 mutations in enzootic bovine leukemic cell lines.

The role of the p53 tumor suppressor gene in bovine lymphosarcomas, a fragment of about 100 bp corresponding to approximately 97% of the open reading frame of the p53 gene was first amplified from single-strand cDNA originated from calf thymus by polymerase chain reaction PCR) and sequenced to obtain the bovine wild-type p53 gene. At the amino acid level… (More)
