The N terminus-truncated splicing variant of TAp63 is known as DeltaNp63. DeltaNp63 lacks transactivation function and is thought to antagonize the transcriptional regulation of the p53 and TAp63 target genes. Overexpression of DeltaNp63 has been observed in a number of human cancers, suggesting a role in carcinogenesis. In the present study we present data showing that the DeltaNp63 gene promoter activity is positively regulated by DeltaNp63alpha, and such positive autoregulation is mediated… CONTINUE READING
