Abstract:Tumor suppressor protein p53 is a transcription factor that plays important roles in biological responses to a wide range of ionizing radiation doses. Elucidation of the molecular mechanisms for its function after actually relevant doses of radiation is therefore crucial for the accurate understanding of the biological effects of radiation. p21 is one of the p53 target genes, functioning in cell cycle checkpoint regulation. In this article, a comprehensive analysis of the p21 gene promoter after clinically rel… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
