    ..In this review, we summarize the current advances that have been made in understanding the role of p63 in epidermal morphogenesis. ..

    ..The ΔNp63-HK2 axis is also present in epithelial cancer cells, suggesting that ΔNp63 could participate in cancer metabolic reprogramming. ..

    ..Together, these studies reinforce that p63 is a crucial gene for maintaining epithelial tissue integrity and support the deregulation of the cell-cell adhesion programme,which plays a critical role in carcinoma development. ..

    ..Here, we characterize five p63 mutations at the 5' end of TP63 gene aiming to understand the pathogenesis of the diseases and to uncover the role of ΔNp63α N-terminus residues in determining its transactivation potential. ..

    ..Our findings identify a novel regulatory loop between miR-34a and KLF4 during keratinocytes replicative senescence. This regulatory loop, beside aging, may play a role in age-related pathologies. ..

    ..We also found that DeltaNp63 upregulates IKKalpha indirectly, through GATA-3. Our data are consistent with a role for p63 directly upstream of IKKalpha in epithelial development. ..

    ..Here, we will focus on the molecular mechanisms regulated by senescence-associated microRNAs and their validated targets in both keratinocytes and dermal fibroblasts. ..

    ..Our results confirm a key role of TG1 in skin differentiation and CE assembly and demonstrate that TG2 is not essential for CE assembly and skin formation. ..

    ..Here, we review the role of p63 isoforms, TAp63 and ?Np63, in controlling cell metabolism, focusing on their specific metabolic target genes and their physiological/functional context of action. ..
