basic FUNCTION
  • is not only necessary but also sufficient for TP53-induced apoptosis
  • tumor suppressor in breast carcinomas, which inhibits tumor growth and invasiveness
  • transcription factor that regulates the cell cycle and induces apoptosis in cancer cells
  • is an androgen-regulated gene
