Brief description The most important agent of the body for fighting cancer is the cellular protein p53. In more than 50% of all human cancers, it looses its anticancer properties through mutation. In an insidious manner this new mutant form then acts to promote cancer. To better treat cancer we need to understand how mutant p53 functions. We will study how it interacts with its molecular partners in cancer cells.
