Protein Data Bank ID: 2OCJ
Protein Name: Core Domain of Protein p53
Organism: Homo sapiens
Title of Drawing: “Pair Scating”
The image shows the structure of the core domain of protein p53. p53 is a tumor suppressor protein meaning that it has a function in preventing cells from cancer. Because of its role in preventing the genome from mutations, this protein is also referred to as “the guardian of the genome”.
