We have been studying the p53 tumor surpressor and our first results have recently been published. To our knowledge, this is the first peer-reviewed results from a distributed computing project related to cancer. Thanks to the continued support of FAH donors, this is will be just the first of many cancer related works that will come from FAH.

The nature of our results can best be described in our paper. However, here's a brief summary of our results. Roughly half of all known cancers result from mutations in p53. Our first work in the cancer area examines the tetramerization domain of p53. We predict how p53 folds and in doing so, we can predict which amino acid mutations would be relevant. When compared with experiments, our predictions have appeared to agree with experiment and give a new interpretation to existing data.

Thanks to all who have helped make this possible.


It appears they are going to apply these results to aid in the development of new treatments. It's still a long way from completion, but it's great to see that progress is actually being made.

Very cool, 8)

A portion of the paper can be found here
but the entire paper costs $30.00 :(

I think we will begin to see more and more articles like this one.

Thunar, where did you find that it costs $30 dollars to get a copy of the paper? That paper would not have been possible, albeit the entire folding community's hard work, money, and dedication. For this groundbreaking paper to not be available to us without a charge, to me is ludicrous. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you........ :roll: :evil:

Brvhrt,
The paper is available as a freePDF download from Stanford's papers page.

Check your PM for the other info you were looking for.

Oh, Cool.....then I take back all the nasty things I said..... :twisted:
Thanks for the link Mah3!!!!!!! I used to work in medical research as a lab tech in the Navy, so I can understand some of what they are talking about! :lol:
