The p53 tumor suppressor is a DNA-damage-responsive sequence-specific transcriptional activator. The sustained activation of the p53 response is incompatible with cell growth and viability. To circumvent this issue, a variety of negative feedback loops exist to limit the duration of p53 activation. Despite our understanding of p53 regulation, very little is… CONTINUE READING
