Description MDM2 is a nuclear phosphoprotein that binds and inhibits transactivation by protein p53, as part of an autoregulatory negative feedback loop. Two transcript variants, L-mdm2 and S-mdm2, differing in the length of the 5'UTR, may be expressed. L-mdm2 results in low constitutive level of protein, while the transcript S-mdm2 seems be actively translated. L-mdm2 contains a 5' leader derived from exon 1 and contains two upstream ORFs absent from S-mdm2. In chimeric constructs containing both the 5......
