    Phosphorylation of the tumour suppressor p53 by the CK2/FACT pathway plays a central role in suppressing ultraviolet (UV)-induced skin cancer in animal models. Although p53 protein stabilization is induced after solar-simulated irradiation of human skin in vivo, p53 phosphorylation has not been defined.
