Database of p53 gene somatic mutations in human tumors and cell lines

Nucleic Acids Res. 1994 Sep;22(17):3551-5.


A data base is described in which over 2,500 mutations in the p53 gene of human tumors and tumor cell lines are compiled from a systematic search of reports published before 1 January 1994. Data from 1994 are being added intermittently, with a systematic search and update scheduled for December, 1994. The compilation has been deposited with the EMBL Data Library and is available in electronic form free of charge. This report contains a rationale for the compilation, a brief summary of the major findings and a description of the data base.
