MDM2 is a nuclear phosphoprotein with an apparent molecular mass of 90 kD that forms a complex with the p53 tumor suppressor protein. Human MDM2 was identified as a homologous product of the 'murine double minute 2' gene (mdm2). The MDM2 gene enhances the tumorigenic potential of cells when it is overexpressed and encodes a putative transcription factor. Forming a tight complex with the p53 gene, the MDM2 oncogene can inhibit p53-mediated transactivation. MDM2 binds to p53 and amplification of MDM2 in sarcomas leads to escape from p53-regulated growth control. This mechanism of tumorigenesis parallels that for virus-induced tumors in which viral oncogene products bind to and functionally inactivate p53.Over-expression of the
