Wild-type p53 attenuates cancer cell motility by inducing growth differentiation factor-15 expression.

A major function of the p53 tumor suppressor is the regulation of the cell cycle and apoptosis. In addition to its well-documented functions in malignant cancer cells, p53 can also regulate cell migration and invasion, which contribute to metastasis. Growth differentiation factor-15 (GDF-15), a member of the TGF-β superfamily, has been shown to be a… CONTINUE READING
