TP53 Disease Mutation Explanation
The viewer helps interpret the mutation present in p53 disorder. The correct amino acid for this protein at amino acid position 270 is Phenylalanine, and in the hypothetical mutant it is changed to Serine. The initial view shows 2 monomers of the p53 protein and a molecule of DNA.
