  • An extremely important tumor suppressor gene. Current thinking on cancer holds that it results from the accumulation of mutations affecting mechanisms which act to stimulate, or to inhibit, cell growth. Many cancer patients have suffered a mutation in this gene, whose protein product normally acts as an important braking mechanism to avoid unnatural proliferative growth.
