ABSTRACT

In response to various forms of cellular stress, including DNA damage, ribonucleotide depletion, and abnormal proliferative signals, p53 becomes activated as a transcription factor, targeting genes that induce cell-cycle arrest and apoptosis. Eliminating damaged, stressed, or abnormally proliferating cells from the replicating cell population prevents the propagation of potentially cancer-prone cells. Here we focus on the transcriptional targets of p53 that regulate the cell cycle. p53 induction of G1/S cell-cycle arrest is largely attributed to the transcriptional upregulation of p21WAF1, and more recently, to the transcriptional repression of c-MYC. The role of p53 in G2/M cell-cycle arrest in response to DNA damage is more complex, involving multiple targets that can generally be considered to impinge upon either the cell cycle (e.g., Cyclin-B, cdc2, cdc25C) or the mitotic machinery (i.e., Topoisomerase II, B99/Gtse-1, and MAP4). The ability of p53 to regulate these two types of gene targets may reflectp53-mediated early versus late events in the G2/M cell-cycle arrest response. Together the information presented illustrates the need for further studies to precisely delineate the nature of G2/M cell-cycle arrest in response to cell stress, and defines the role of p53 in what is likely an important mechanism of tumor suppression.
