The p53 gene is linked to the 17th chromosome and is a tumor suppressor protein. The protein p53 is vital in allowing other normal cells to grow, and be able to tell the difference in each other. A Mutation in p53 regulates significant change in transforming cells from being normal to malignant (cancerous). P53 helps (or codes) for a protein that acts that regulates the cell cycle. If p53 stops or does not start working, this gene through will disrupt the cell cycle. This will normally cause a tumor to form. P53 is linked to the 17th chromosome, meaning that it is autosomal. The p53 gene is also dominant and hereditary. P53 is usually only activated in mutated and damaged cells. This protein fixes what is broken or damaged and regulates growth. If the cell is irreparable, it goes through apoptosis (cell death).
