InnateDB Annotation
TP53 binds to canonical and non-canonical promoter regions of the human TLR gene family and up-regulates the expression of TLRs. The activation of TP53 can directly influence the TLR-mediated induction of cytokines.
TP53 serves as a host antiviral factor and enhances both the innate and adaptive immune responses to influenza A virus. (Demonstrated in mice)
Coronavirus engages papain-like proteases to escape from the innate antiviral response of the host by inhibiting TP53-IRF7-IFNB1 signalling.
InnateDB Annotation from Orthologs
[Mus musculus] Tpr53 serves as a host antiviral factor and enhances both the innate and adaptive immune responses to influenza A virus.
Entrez Gene
Summary This gene encodes a tumor suppressor protein containing transcriptional activation, DNA binding, and oligomerization domains. The encoded protein responds to diverse cellular stresses to regulate expression of target genes, thereby inducing cell cycle arrest, apoptosis, senescence, DNA repair, or changes in metabolism. Mutations in this gene are associated with a variety of human cancers, including hereditary cancers such as Li-Fraumeni syndrome. Alternative splicing of this gene and the use of alternate promoters result in multiple transcript variants and isoforms. Additional isoforms have also been shown to result from the use of alternate translation initiation codons (PMIDs: 12032546, 20937277). [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2013]
