Typically, malignant melanoma has wild-type p53, and yet this cancer proliferates. S100B, which binds p53 and is up-regulated in melanoma, down-regulates wild-type p53 tumor suppressor function. Inhibitors of the S100B-p53 interaction were identified using computer aided drug design (CADD) combined with NMR methodologies and represent potentially new chemotherapeutics for melanoma.

Keywords: S100B, p53, calcium, inhibitors, drug design, cancer
