Although MDM2 gene amplification has been shown to occur in up to 7% of all human tumors, MDM2 in soft tissue sarcomas is more often upregulated (20%).
Discovery of NVP-CGM097 as a novel Mdm2 inhibitor (Abstract #DDT01-01; April 6, 1:00 p.
The SDC tumor showed a complex chromosomal profile with multiple losses including homozygous loss of the CDKN2A/CDKN2B (p16/p15) locus and amplification of a region in 12q that includes the MDM2 gene, which is a key regulator of p53 activity by inducing its degradation.
p53 Arg72Pro, MDM2 T309G and CCND1 G870A polymorphisms are not associated with susceptibility to esophageal adenocarcinoma.
Some investigators have demonstrated mdm2 amplification in 20-30% of TCCs (84); others reported rather infrequent results (85).
ARF] interacts with MDM2 and limits MDM2-controlled destruction of p53.
253) Constitutive ALK signaling may also lead to inactivation and/or JNK-induced MDM2 (murine double minute)-dependent degradation of p53 and the PI3-K-mediated exclusion of p53 from the nucleus.

A dual-color MDM2 FISH probe that hybridizes to the MDM2 gene region (12q13-15) has been developed at the Cleveland Clinic (Cleveland, Ohio) to aid in the diagnosis of atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma.
Amino acids identified as important for transcriptional activation and Mdm2 binding (34) are conserved across all three molluscan species and in both splice variants of the soft-shell clam homologue (Figure 1).
