Role of Gadd45 in apoptosis.


gadd45 is a p53-regulated growth arrest and DNA-damage-inducible gene that is also regulated in a p53-independent manner. Whether Gadd45 plays a direct role in apoptosis remains unclear. Microinjection of the exogenous gadd45 expression vector into human fibroblasts has been shown to cause G2 arrest but not apoptosis. Recent studies suggest that Gadd45 may… (More)
