Researchers at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health, have identified a gene that plays an important role in preventing tumors in mice. In a study published in the Aug. 8, 2003, issue of the journal Cell*, the researchers demonstrate that reducing or eliminating the H2AX gene in mice that lack p53, a well-known tumor suppressor gene, causes an increase in the number of tumors that develop.
