The p53 protein is critical to regulation of normal cell growth and is a suppressor of tumor cell proliferation. Inactivation of p53 by a number of mechanisms, such as missense mutations or interaction with oncogenic viral or cellular proteins, can result in tumor progression. Mutations and/or allelic loss of the p53 gene is associated with a wide variety of human tumors. Known to have a role in transcriptional regulation, p53 suppresses various promoters containing TATA elements in an apparently sequence-independent fashion. p53 also binds to DNA in a sequence-specific manner via recognition of a 20 bp consensus-binding site. This interaction stimulates the expression of genes downstream of the p53 binding site. A number of genes that contain p53-binding sites have been identified, including MDM2, GADD45, and muscle creatine kinase. It is thought that MDM2 is a feedback regulator of p53. In addition, a p53-inducible gene, Cip1, has been identified and shown to suppress tumor cell growth in culture.
