The murine C'-terminally alternatively spliced form of p53 induces attenuated apoptosis in myeloid cells.

The onset of p53-dependent apoptosis results from the accumulation of damaged DNA. Recently, it was shown that the C' terminus of the p53 protein plays a central role in sensing damaged DNA. In our present study, we examined the role of the C' terminus in the induction of apoptosis. A temperature-sensitive (ts) mutant of the alternatively spliced form of… CONTINUE READING
