Caption: Research into tumour suppressor genes (anti- oncogenes). Print out of DNA sequences produced during research into the role of the tumour suppressor gene (anti-oncogene) p53. Experiments show that the mutation (& consequent inactivation) of p53 is implicated in the development of certain types of cancers. This suggests that the products of this gene help keep in check the capacity of cells to proliferate, an early stage in tumour formation. The role of p53 is being investigated in relation to specific tumours: mutation by hepatitis B virus in the liver & by chemicals in cigarette smoke in the lung.
