Dynamics of p53: A Master Decider of Cell Fate
AbstractCellular stress‐induced temporal alterations—i.e., dynamics—are typically exemplified by the dynamics of p53 that serve as a master to determine cell fate. p53 dynamics were initially identified as the variations of p53 protein levels. However, a growing number of studies have shown that p53 dynamics are also manifested in variations in the activity, spatial location, and posttranslational modifications of p53 proteins, as well as the interplay among all p53 dynamical features. These are essential in determining a specific outcome of cell fate. In this review, we discuss the importance of the multifaceted features of p53 dynamics and their roles in the cell fate decision process, as well as their potential applications in p53‐based cancer therapy. The review provides new insights into p53 signaling pathways and their potentials in the development of new strategies in p53‐based cancer therapy. View Full-Text
