In addition, p27 is rarely mutated in breast cancer, but the cell cycle inhibitory action of this protein is often impaired through accelerated degradation, sequestration by cyclin D–CDK complexes and mislocalization. Reduction of p27 does not alone cause cancer but accelerates tumor formation by tumor promoters. 98 Furthermore, p21 arrests growth after DNA damage to allow repair. Thus, p21-deficient tumors are sensitive to radiation. Attenuating p21 in tumor cells can lead to an increased susceptibility to currently used DNA-damaging therapeutic agents, suggesting this may be a viable target for cancer therapy.
