This is the Mutations Prevalence data set of the IARC TP53 Mutation Database (Rel. 14)
The Prevalence Table provides information on the prevalence of TP53 mutation by tumor type.
It contains all publications having identified the mutations by sequencing.
This includes publications contained in the Somatic Mutations data set, but also publications that do not
give a detailed description of the mutations (many recent studies do not provide detailed
information on each mutation detected but rather report their results in the form of summary
tables) and publications with negative results (no mutation found).
For each study, the total number of tumors or tissue samples analyzed, and the number of these
samples which were found to contain a mutation are recorded. The reference paper, method of
mutation detection and country of origin of the patients are also indicated.
When the same research team published several papers with increasing number of samples,
the most recent paper with the largest dataset is used.
