Abstract:

The proposed studies seek to explore cellular and molecular aspects of p53 function that may contribute to the development and progression of breast cancer. The hypotheses are 1 that p53 and a novel physiological splicing variant, p53as, have distinct stability in cells, distinct expression during the cell cycle, and distinct associated proteins 2 that p53as has different specificity or affinity for DNA binding sequences than p53 and 3 that p53 and p53as mRNA and protein are differentially expressed in mouse mammary preneoplastic and neoplastic cells and tissues with implications for breast cancer detection, prognosis or treatment.
