25 Years of P53 Research by Pierre Hainaut, Klas G. Wiman

By Pierre Hainaut, Klas G. Wiman

The invention of p53 in 1979 marks the start of a so much attention-grabbing period of contemporary melanoma learn and molecular biology, an period that continues to be in complete swing and doesn't express any indicators of finishing within the foreseeable destiny. p53 has emerged as a key tumor suppressor and demanding aim for novel melanoma treatment. For round 10 years, p53 used to be thought of an oncogene with slightly strange gains. even though, a big paradigm shift happened round 1988-89 while fascinating new findings tested that ordinary (wild kind) p53 may well inhibit transformation of cells in tradition and that the p53 gene used to be mutated in a wide fraction of human tumors. in truth, p53 the main usually mutated gene in melanoma cells. next paintings throughout the 1990’s confirmed that p53 was once a transcription issue that regulates many different genes, and that p53 can set off apoptosis, the suicide software of the telephone. This booklet, written by means of world-leading p53 researchers together with lots of those that have formed the sector during the last 25 years, presents specified insights into the growth of the p53 box and the clients for larger melanoma prognosis and remedy sooner or later. it's going to be of curiosity to every person operating in melanoma learn, scientific oncology, and molecular biology, and certainly to anyone attracted to technological know-how, medication, in addition to in contemporary advancements of the information and ideas of the molecular biology of melanoma.
