Detection of Human p53 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of CEM human T‑lymphoblastoid cell line and MCF‑7 human breast cancer cell line untreated (-) or treated (+) with 10 Gy ionizing radiation (IR) for 1 hour. PVDF membrane was probed with 1:5000 dilution of Human/Mouse/Rat p53 HRP-conjugated Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # HAF1355). A specific band was detected for p53 at approximately 53 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

The p53 tumor suppressor protein is a multi-functional transcription factor that regulates cellular decisions regarding proliferation, cell cycle checkpoints, and apoptosis. The importance of p53 is underscored by its mutation in over 50% of human cancers. Mice that lack one or both copies of p53 also showed an increased incidence of tumors, which makes the p53 deficient mouse a model system for studying cancer generation and progression.
