Mutations in the p53 gene are among the most common genetic changes in human carcinomas.
They have been found in many tumor types including colon, lung, and breast.
We have used constant denaturant gel electrophoresis in order to screen samples from 109 breast carcinomas for mutations in four conserved regions, exons 5, 7, and 8, of the p53 gene.
Samples were also analyzed for allelic loss of the p53 gene and of markers more distal on chromosome 17p.
Mutations were confirmed by DNA sequencing.
Mutations were found in 18 of the 109 samples (16.5%). Loss of heterozygosity at 17p was detected in the majority of informative mutated cases.
All cases were also screened for germ line mutations, but none were found.
