p53 (TP53, Tumor Protein p53) Gene Mutation Analysis
Li-Fraumeni Syndrome

Germline (heritable) mutations in the p53 gene1 predispose individuals to various tumors (early onset sarcomas and breast cancer, brain tumors, adrenal cortical carcinomas, and leukemias) associated with Li-Fraumeni syndrome 2,3. Identification of p53 gene mutations in cancer patients from Li-Fraumeni syndrome or Li-Fraumeni syndrome-like4 families may permit identification of individuals at high risk for cancer in these families.
