The tumor suppressor protein p53 is recognized to contribute significantly to the regulation of mitochondrial content. Mice without p53 have reduced endurance capacity and muscle performance. However, the function of p53 in muscle remains to be fully established. Understanding how p53 coordinates mitochondrial homeostasis will facilitate a better comprehension of how exercise could constitute as a therapy for cancer treatment.
