Findings suggest need for new view of p53 cancer protein's interaction with DNA

...o this question is key to drug development efforts aimed at countering the effects of p53 mutations. Scientists thought that they had a good window on the p53 protein's interactions with DNA from structural studies that showed a single copy of the protein bound to DNA in a particular conformation. Now a te...
