This gene encodes tumor protein p53 which responds to diverse cellular stresses to regulate target genes that induce cell cycle arrest apoptosis senescence DNA repair or changes in metabolism. p53 protein is expressed at low level in normal cells and at a high level in a variety of transformed cell lines where it's believed to contribute to transformation and malignancy. p53 is a DNA-binding protein containing transcription activation DNA-binding and oligomerization domains. It is postulated to bind to a p53-binding site and activate expression of downstream genes that inhibit growth and/or invasion and thus function as a tumor suppressor. Mice deficient for this gene are developmentally normal but are susceptible to spontaneous tumors. Evidence to date shows that this gene contains one promoter in contrast to alternative promoters of the human gene and transcribes a few of splice variants which encode different isoforms although the biological validity or the full-length nature of some variants has not been determined.
