Mutations in the TP53 (p53) gene are present in a large fraction of human tumours, which frequently express mutant p53 proteins at high but heterogeneous levels. The clinical significance of this protein accumulation remains clouded. Mouse models bearing knock‐in mutations of p53 have established that the mutant p53 proteins can drive tumour formation, invasion and metastasis through dominant negative inhibition of wild‐type p53 as well as through gain of function or ‘neomorphic’ activities… Expand
Therapeutic targeting of p53: all mutants are equal, but some mutants are more equal than others
TLDR
This Review proposes a categorization of the major classes of p53 mutants based on their functionality in tumour suppression and response to therapy, and suggests that the mutations across TP53 form a 'rainbow of mutants', with varying degrees of functionality and different pathobiological consequences.

TLDR
Results of the trial show that the APR-246 (PRIMA-1) molecule is safe at therapeutic plasma levels and can induce p53-dependent biologic effects, and represent a major step forward in targeting the most frequently altered pathway in cancer. Expand
Wild-type and mutant p53 mediate cisplatin resistance through interaction and inhibition of active caspase-9
TLDR
It is demonstrated that p53, when present at high levels in the cytoplasm, has an inhibitory effect on caspase-9, and the inhibition of caspASE-9 as a potential mechanism in evading apoptosis in tumors with high-level p53 expression that is cy toplasmically localized. Expand
Mutant p53 accumulates in cycling and proliferating cells in the normal tissues of p53 R172H mutant mice
TLDR
It is shown for the first time that similarly elevated levels of Mutant p53 can be detected in apparently normal cells in a mutant p53 knock-in mouse model and the small intestine of these p53 mutant mice is an experimental system in which the molecular pathways leading to p53 accumulation are dissected. Expand
New therapeutic strategies to treat human cancers expressing mutant p53 proteins
TLDR
Mouse models show that the genetic reconstitution of the wild type p53 tumor suppression functions rescues tumor growth, which strongly supports the notion that either restoring wt-p53 activity or inhibiting mutant p53 oncogenic activity could provide an efficient strategy to treat human cancers. Expand
Mutant p53 gain of function is interwoven into the hallmarks of cancer
TLDR
This commentary links mutant p53 activities to the hallmarks of cancer, describing its involvement in resistance to apoptosis, genomic instability, aberrant cell cycle, invasion and metastasis, tumour microenvironment, and inflammation. Expand
Gain‐of‐function mutant p53 but not p53 deletion promotes head and neck cancer progression in response to oncogenic K‐ras
TLDR
Strong in vivo evidence is found for an oncogenic function of endogenous p53 gain‐of‐function mutations in SCCHN and a mechanistic explanation for the genetic interaction betweenoncogenic K‐ras and mutant p53 is provided. Expand
Mutant p53 accumulation in human breast cancer is not an intrinsic property or dependent on structural or functional disruption but is regulated by exogenous stress and receptor status
TLDR
The data indicate that missense mutant p53 stabilization is a complex and variable process in human breast cancers that associates with disease characteristics but is unrelated to structural or functional properties. Expand
Genomic Instability: The Pivotal Role of Mutant P53 in Human Cancers
TLDR
Accumulating evidences suggest that mutant p53 proteins drastically perturb the residual genome-stabilizing mechanisms during cancer progression, thereby increasing genomic instability of Mutant p53 carrying human cancers. Expand

TLDR
P53 has been studied intensively as a major tumour suppressor that detects oncogenic events in cancer cells and eliminates them through senescence or apoptosis, and its regulatory contributions and ability to integrate signals from cellular events towards providing most appropriate response to stress conditions are examined.

Mutant p53 gain of function: reduction of tumor malignancy of human cancer cell lines through abrogation of mutant p53 expression
TLDR
It is found that depletion of mutant p53 reduces cell proliferation, in vitro and in vivo tumorigenicity, and resistance to anticancer drugs. Expand
p53 gain-of-function cancer mutants induce genetic instability by inactivating ATM
TLDR
P53 gain-of-function mutants promote tumorigenesis by a novel mechanism involving active disruption of critical DNA damage-response pathways, as indicated by several lines of evidence. Expand

TLDR
The biological manifestations of mutant p53 gain-of-function, the underlying molecular mechanisms, and their possible clinical implications are addressed. Expand
Mutant p53R270H gain of function phenotype in a mouse model for oncogene‐induced mammary carcinogenesis
TLDR
It is found that mutant p53R270H in bi‐transgenic mice enhanced the transition from intraepithelial neoplasia to invasive carcinoma, resulting in a higher frequency of invasive carcinomas per gland and per mouse, a more severe tumor phenotype, and more frequent pulmonary metastasis. Expand
The R246S hot-spot p53 mutant exerts dominant-negative effects in embryonic stem cells in vitro and in vivo
TLDR
It is demonstrated here that R246S mutant p53 exhibits DN effects with respect to target gene expression, cell survival and cell cycle arrest both in cells that are in the undifferentiated state and upon differentiation. Expand
p53 protein stability in tumour cells is not determined by mutation but is dependent on Mdm2 binding
TLDR
It is proposed that tumour lines which express high levels of transcriptionally inactive mutant p53 are unable to induce the expression of the Mdm2 protein which would normally provide a feedback mechanism down-regulating p53 protein levels in the absence of DNA damage signals. Expand
Presence of dominant negative mutation of TP53 is a risk of early recurrence in oral cancer.
TLDR
The presence and absence of a dominant negative p53 mutation may provide a predictor of early recurrence in oral SCC patients. Expand
p73 can suppress the proliferation of cells that express mutant p53
TLDR
Wild-type p73β, in the presence of mutant p53, retains the ability to transactivate p21 and suppresses cell growth through induction of both cell cycle arrest and apoptosis, and it is found that these proteins cooperate to additively transactivatep21 and suppress cell proliferation. Expand
Physical and Functional Interaction between p53 Mutants and Different Isoforms of p73*
TLDR
A network involving mutant p53 and the various spliced isoforms of p73 that may confer upon tumor cells a selective survival advantage is defined, which is defined as a network involving p53His175 and p53Gly281 and can associate with p73 not only physically but also functionally. Expand

TLDR
It is reported that human tumor-derived p53 mutants can associate in vitro and in vivo with p63 through their respective core domains and it is shown that the interaction with mutant p53 impairs in vitroand in vivo sequence-specific DNA binding of p63 and consequently affects its transcriptional activity.
