The ARF/MDM2/p53 pathway is a principal defense mechanism to protect the organism from uncontrolled effects of deregulated oncogenes. Oncogenes activate ARF, which interacts with and inhibits the ubiquitin ligase MDM2, resulting in p53 stabilization and activation. Once stabilized and activated, p53 can either induce or repress a wide array of different gene targets, which in turn can regulate cell cycle, DNA repair, and a number of apoptosis-related genes. Here we show that, unlike p53, p63, a member of the p53 family, directly interacts with p14ARF. Through this interaction ARF inhibits p63-mediated transactivation and transrepression. In p63-transfected cells, ARF, which normally localizes into nucleoli, accumulates in the nucleoplasm. Based on these observations, we suggest that stimuli inducing p14ARF expression can, at the same time, activate p53 and impair p63 transcriptional activity, altering the pattern of p53 target gene expression. Here we show, for the first time, a physical and functional link between the p14ARF tumor suppressor protein and p63, a member of the p53 family.

Abstract

The ARF/MDM2/p53 pathway is a principal defense mechanism to protect the organism from uncontrolled effects of deregulated oncogenes. Oncogenes activate ARF, which interacts with and inhibits the ubiquitin ligase MDM2, resulting in p53 stabilization and activation. Once stabilized and activated, p53 can either induce or repress a wide array of different gene targets, which in turn can regulate cell cycle, DNA repair, and a number of apoptosis-related genes. Here we show that, unlike p53, p63, a member of the p53 family, directly interacts with p14ARF. Through this interaction ARF inhibits p63-mediated transactivation and transrepression. In p63-transfected cells, ARF, which normally localizes into nucleoli, accumulates in the nucleoplasm. Based on these observations, we suggest that stimuli inducing p14ARF expression can, at the same time, activate p53 and impair p63 transcriptional activity, altering the pattern of p53 target gene expression. Here we show, for the first time, a physical and functional link between the p14ARF tumor suppressor protein and p63, a member of the p53 family.
