In brief: Tumor supression
The p53 gene, is a tumor suppressor gene, i.
e., its activity stops the formation of tumors. If a person inherits only one functional copy of the p53 gene from their parents, they are predisposed to cancer and usually develop several independent tumors in a variety of tissues in early adulthood. This condition is rare, and is known as li-fraumeni syndrome.
