Elephants, P53 and Cancer

Postby Ricky » Thu Oct 29, 2015 1:15 am

My sister mentioned this news. Elephants have extra copies of P53 genes.
See: http://www.nature.com/news/how-elephants-avoid-cancer-1.18534
Could introducing extra (good copies of) P53 be introduced into cancer patients somehow? Can P53 pass into a cell from outside of the cell?
