We have detected both germ-line and somatic p53 mutations in lymphocytes, cell lines and tumor tissues using a functional analysis of p53 tumor suppressor gene based on yeast transcription assay. Through our screening projects of the p53 gene, a number of missense p53 mutations were identified as loss-of-function mutations. This method, previously termed FASAY, is rapid, sensitive, less -expensive and can be automated for screening both somatic and germ-line p53 mutations.
