Supplement Figure 1. p73 Gene and N-terminal isoforms of p73 protein. The structure of the p73 gene is depicted, including the p73 gene exons (black filled boxes for all exons, except exon 1 and exon 4 are labeled unfilled boxes), introns (lines connecting boxes), and p73 gene promotes (P1 & P2). The approximate position of the p73 dinucleotide polymorphism (p73 DNP) in exon 2 is indicated. The two major N-terminal protein isoforms of p73, TAp73 and ΔNp73, are depicted (below the p73 gene), including the major functional domains (TA = transactivation domain; DBD = DNA-binding domain; OD = oligomerization domain). The TAp73 form includes exons 1 through 3, which are absent in the ΔNp73 isoforms.
