Abstract

Recent work demonstrates that retention of a single functional retinoblastoma susceptibility (RB1) allele is insufficient to maintain genome stability. Haploinsufficiency of RB1 accelerates cancer pathogenesis in concert with inactivation of tumor protein p53. Collectively, multiple lines of evidence suggest revision of the ‘2-hit’ model to include conditional haploinsufficiency of RB1.
