p53 mutation hotspot in radon-associated lung cancer.

Abstract

Mutations in gene p53 are the most common defects in lung cancer and may be a pathway through which environmental carcinogens initiate cancer. We investigated p53 mutations in lung cancers from uranium miners with high radon exposure. 16 (31%) of 52 large-cell and squamous-cell cancers from miners contained the same AGG to ATG transversion at codon 249… (More)
