Another key for the p53 door

...as a transcription factor to cause cell suicide in response to DNA damage. "In terms of possible therapies for the future, YY1's regulation of p53 at different levels means that we have new, different targeting options," says LICR's Dr. Johan Ericsson, the senior author of the study. "We know that we can use ...

New technique helps scientists reveal interactions between genes and drugs
