We have investigated the expression of Mr 53,000 protein (p53) in total RNA isolated from human peripheral blood mononuclear cells stimulated by phytohemagglutinin, in serum-stimulated human diploid fibroblasts, and in normal and tumor cells of human epithelial colon tissue. We have found that the expression of p53 messenger RNA is growth regulated in human cells following kinetics similar to that previously shown in mouse 3T3 cells, and is increased in the large majority of colon adenocarcinomas in comparison to adjacent normal mucosa and adenoma. This increased expression of p53 is accompanied by a nearly proportional increase in the expression of histone H3. As the expression of histone H3 is restricted to the S phase of the cell cycle and therefore measures the growth fraction of a given population, we suggest that the increased expression of p53 observed in the large majority of colon tumors simply reflects the increased number of cycling cells frequently found in a neoplastic tissue. At variance with these findings a true overexpression of p53 was detected in one SV40-transformed human fibroblasts cell line.
