p53 overexpression increases chemosensitivity in multidrug-resistant osteosarcoma cell lines

Multidrug resistance (MDR) is a major obstacle to the successful treatment of osteosarcoma with chemotherapy. Effectiveness of cancer therapy correlates with the ability to induce a p53-dependent apoptotic response. p53 is a tumor suppressor gene that is mutated in 22 % of osteosarcomas. While impaired p53 has been implicated in the oncogenesis of… (More)
