Abstract The p53 tumor-suppressor protein binds DNA and activates the expression of a 21-kDa protein that inhibits both the activity of cyclin-dependent kinases and the function of proliferating cell nuclear antigen. Since p21 expression has been reported to increase 10- to 20-fold as human diploid fibroblasts lose the ability to replicate, we examined the expression and activity of p53 during replicative aging. Similar levels of total p53 mRNA and protein were expressed in low-passage (young) and high-passage (old) cells but both DNA binding activity in vitro and transcriptional activity of p53 in vivo were increased severalfold in high-passage cells. While the basis of increased p53 activity is presently unclear, it is not correlated with differential phosphorylation or changes in p53-mouse double minute 2 gene product interactions. These results provide evidence for the activation of a protein involved in the control of cell cycle checkpoints during cellular aging, in the absence of increased expression.
