Description This model contains a bi-allelic 14 base pair deletion within exon 3 of the most commonly mutated gene in human cancers, Tp53 (Tumor protein p53). This deletion causes a frameshift in the coding region, resulting in a premature termination codon at the end of exon 3.
Additional Informationon the p53 Knockout p53 is a tumor suppressor protein encoded by the Tp53 gene. Its role in cell cycle regulation and stabilization for preventing genome mutation is observable among a wide variety of multicellular organisms, including humans, rodents, frogs and fish. Homozygous rats deficient in p53 protein are prone to spontaneous tumors, making them valuable for in vivo screening of carcinogenicity, as well as studying chemopreventive and therapeutic treatment. Characteristics of the p53 Knockout Total loss of protein via Western blot Research Applications Early carcinogenicity screening Chemopreventive/Chemotherapeutic screening p53 function studies
