Prognostic value of p21(WAF1) and p53 expression in breast carcinoma: an immunohistochemical study in 261 patients with long-term follow-up.

p21 protein (p21) inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases is a critical downstream effector in the p53-specific pathway of growth control and can also be induced by p53-independent pathways in relation to terminal differentiation. We investigated p21 immunoreactivity in 261 breast carcinomas (141 node negative and 120 node positive) with long-term follow-up… CONTINUE READING
