Abstract : There is a difference in profiles of p53 mutation in pre and post menopausal breast cancers. Mutation of the p53 gene is often in exon 5 for postmenopausal breast cancer but mutation of p53 is often in exon 6 and 7 for premenopausal breast cancers, therefore p53 may be a useful epidemiological tool for identification of mutagen and genetic factors that contribute to breast cancer.
