“Unraveling the metabolic role of p53”
p53 is an intensively studied protein, primarily as a tumour suppressor. Besides cell proliferation, p53 also plays an important role in different biological functions including longevity, stress, ageing, and obesity-associated disorders such as hepatic steatosis and insulin resistance. In this talk we will go through some of the lately studies on the metabolic role in different tissues and its physiological implications.
