Tumor Suppressor Proteins

Tumor suppressor proteins are a family of proteins that inhibit the rate of cell proliferation, which may prevent the development of cancer.

Tumor suppressors are tumor-suppressing genes that normally control and regulate the cell cycle. These genes usually prevent growth from becoming abnormal. However, when these genes become mutated or defective, they can no longer perform their function in the cell cycle properly. As a result, cancerous cells are produced.
