p53, also known as a tumour supressor protein, is a gene coding for a protein that helps regulate normal cell growth and multiplication[1]. This protein is found in the nucleus of all cells in the human body.This gene plays a critical role in suppressing tumours by inhibiting the division and growth of damaged cells, without which cancer would occur[2].
