Abstract

Happy 25th Anniversary p53 ! Since this is such a special occasion, I (GW) thought of explaining how fate brought p53 and me together. It was a snowy day in Utah when Arnie Levine came to the University of Utah in 1976 to present a lecture on genetic approaches to differentiation of teratocarcinoma cells. My graduate work with Mario Capecchi (starting at Harvard and continuing at the University of Utah) led me to appreciate the potential power of genetics in cancer research. I therefore arranged to visit Arnie's lab to learn more about his research program. We discussed many topics, but not about how the large transforming protein (T antigen) of SV40 (SV40TAg) interacted with a putative ~54kDα cellular protein (Linzer and Levine, 1979).
