Size of p53??

Post by pfdunlop » Tue May 12, 2009 10:26 pm

Help me!

I was on wikipedia, and read that p53 was names so due to its size on a SDS page, but that it is actually 43kDa, and due to prolines, the drag is increased making it appear larger. Is this true?

Could someone give me a more reputable place to back this up, as I cannot find it anywhere.

Plus I have an exam tomorrow and want to add this as it does sound funky!!

Cheers
