    The EWS-FLI1 transcription factor is consistently expressed in 85% of Ewing tumors (EFT). In heterologous cells, EWS-FLI1 induces p53-dependent cell cycle arrest or apoptosis. It has been speculated that the p53 tumor suppressor pathway may be generally compromised in EFT despite only rare p53...

    The hereditary breast and ovarian tumor suppressor BRCA1 can activate p53-dependent gene expression. We show here that BRCA1 increases p53 protein levels through a post-transcriptional mechanism. BRCA1-stabilized p53 has increased sequence-specific DNA-binding and transcriptional activity. BRCA1...

    p53 protein immunoexpression was evaluated in 17 invasive carcinomas arising in pleomorphic adenoma and correlated with the histologic type and tumor grade. Ten tumors had one malignant histologic component: adenocarcinoma NOS (not otherwise specified) (five), undifferentiated carcinoma (two),...

  • A Small-Molecule p53 Activator Induces Apoptosis through Inhibiting MDMX Expression in Breast Cancer Cells. Hongbo Wang; Chunhong Yan // Neoplasia;Jul2011, Vol. 13 Issue 7, p611 

    The tumor suppressor p53 is often inactivated in breast cancer cells because the overexpression of its repressors (e.g., MDM2 and MDMX). Restoration of p53 activity by small molecules through counteracting p53 repressors can lead to in vivo tumor regression and is therefore considered a...

  • Correlation between the status of the p53 gene and survival in patients with stage I non-small cell lung carcinoma. Tomizawa, Yoshio; Kohno, Takashi; Fujita, Takeshi; Kiyama, Masaharu; Saito, Ryusei; Noguchi, Masayuki; Matsuno, Yoshihiro; Hirohashi, Setsuo; Yamaguchi, Naohito; Nakajima, Takashi; Yokota, Jun // Oncogene;1/28/99, Vol. 18 Issue 4, p1007 

    The association of p53 abnormalities with the prognosis of patients with non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) has been extensively investigated to date, however, this association is still controversial. Therefore, we investigated the prognostic significance of p53 mutations through exons 2 to...

    Background: Recently the use of "two-tier" grading system in which ovarian serous carcinoma was classified as low-grade or high grade in comparing to preceding system has improved authority in prognosis and survival. This approach is simplistic, reproducible, and based on biologic evidence. In...

  • Double Strand Break Repair Activities of p53 as Potential Tumor Suppressor Function Counteracting Mammary Tumor Development. Wiesmüller, Lisa; Kreienberg, Rolf // Current Women's Health Reviews;2006, Vol. 2 Issue 2, p133 

    Correct repair of DNA double strand breaks (DSBs) is central to the maintenance of the genome integrity, since errors give rise to translocations, deletions, duplications, and expansions, thereby accelerating the multistep process of tumorigenesis. Altered DSB repair activities have been closely...
