Most scientific literature devoted to the protein p53 refers to cancer biology, and the functions of this molecule as a tumour suppressor have been described in detail.
At present, Alzheimer’s disease (AD) cannot be prevented, it is typically diagnosed only at an advances stage, and there is currently no drug on the market that can slow its progression.
The division of a cell in two requires the assembly of the mitotic spindle, an extremely complex structure, which is the result of the coordinated action of a multitude of proteins and a finely tun
