Research Description

My research is about some roles of p53 in cell senescence, autophagy and cell apoptosis. Our research reveals: During senescence, p53 is not only involved in the regulation of cell senescence but its function are also associated with cell autophagy. P53 may combine with RASSF1A promoter specifically and reduced the expression level of RASSF1A. p53 had controlled the range of cell apoptosis probably by this action of RASSF1A, and prevented excessive apoptosis from increasing the damage to the organization. This make the body dealing with the bad environmental stimuli and make cell to establishing an appropriate balance between survival and death.
