  • Patent number: 6071715
    Abstract: The retinoblastoma protein (Rb) is the product of the retinoblastoma gene and has been found to contain mutations in retinoblastoma tumor cells. Two nuclear proteins that bind to Rb, p48 and p46 have been isolated and the genes have been cloned. These proteins bind to Rb competitively with the SV40 T antigen. p48 is shown to suppress heat shock sensitive Ras mutations in yeast and is implicated as a modulator of the retinoblastoma suppressor function of Rb.
