    The article reports on two studies which focus on mouse cancer models that reveal the power of cellular senescence as a p53-mediated mechanism of tumor suppression. Both studies offers the in vivo evidence for the hypothesis that senescence induced by telomere dysfunction is a powerful tumor...

    Deregulation of E2F transcriptional activity as a result of alterations in the p16INK4a-cyclin D1-Rb pathway is a hallmark of human cancer. E2F is a family of related factors that controls the expression of genes important for cell cycle progression as well as other processes such as apoptosis,...

    Autophagy is a survival-promoting pathway that captures, degrades, and recycles intracellular proteins and organelles in lysosomes. Autophagy preserves organelle function, prevents the toxic buildup of cellular waste products, and provides substrates to sustain metabolism in starvation. Although...

  • Unmet Expectations: miR-34 Plays No Role in p53-Mediated Tumor Suppression In Vivo. Jain, Abhinav K.; Barton, Michelle Craig // PLoS Genetics;Jul2012, Vol. 8 Issue 7, Special section p1 

    The authors comment on a study which concluded that a complete inactivation of miR-34 genes in mice leads to little or no change in p53-mediated functions in tumor suppression. They believe that miR-34-deficient mouse models will be valuable in addressing whether miR-34 functions downstream of...

    The p21 protein, a regulator of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs), has been thought to be one of the key proteins to function in cell proliferation suppression upon DNA damage. In normal cells but not in many tumor cells, p21 forms a quaternary complex with a cyclin, a CDK and the proliferating...
