MY FAVORITE PROTEINS RANKED
- 1.P53- "the guardian of the genome" this tumor suppressor protein responsible for apoptosis is awesome.
- 2.BRCA1- "breast cancer type 1 susceptibility protein" responsible for repairing DNA.
- 3.Prions- virus-like infectious agents composed entirely of a protein responsible for the craziest diseases in my opinion.
- 4.E6 & E7- oncogenes (cancer causing genes) responsible for disarming p53 and pRb respectively, associated with HPV.
