Tag: p53

p53: A tumor suppressor protein whose activation results either in cell death or DNA repair. Normally, p53 prevents the progression of cells with incorrect numbers of chromosomes toward cancer. However, p53 mutations can endow p53 with new functions that promote, instead of inhibit, cancer formation.
