The tumor suppressor protein p53 plays a critical role in protecting humans from cancer. In response to cellular stresses, such as DNA damage, p53 levels increase and induce a variety of protective biological responses. In unstressed cells, p53 is maintained at a low level by MDM2, a protein that interacts with p53 and promotes its degradation. Following DNA damage, MDM2 is degraded rapidly, resulting in increased p53 levels. Because of the essential role of MDM2 in modulating p53 function, it is critical to understand how MDM2 levels are regulated. Here we show that, following DNA damage, the F-box protein FBXO31, a potential tumor suppressor, is responsible for promoting MDM2 degradation and therefore is essential for the increase in p53 levels.
