tumoral     --low  
correlates with increases of SAC protein expression in patients with lung cancer
tumoral     --low gain of function
loss of TAp73 or deltaNp73 up-regulation activates the angiogenic switch that stimulates tumor growth and progression
tumoral     --low  
TP73 methylation is common in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes and is associated with poor prognosis
Susceptibility to cancer
Variant & Polymorphism SNP
  • polymorphism (G4C14-A4T14) probably associates with cancer risk
  • Candidate gene
    Therapy target
  • Tp73 is a transcriptional activator of Ngfr and Ngfr mRNA and protein levels are strongly reduced in the central and peripheral nervous systems of p73 knockout mice
