Regulation of apoptosis by NPM1. In unstressed cells, p14ARF and NPM1 form a dimer in the nucleoli, allowing MDM2 to target p53 for proteasomal degradation. Following a stress, such as DNA damages, p14ARF and NPM1 dissociate and relocate to the nucleus were they sequester MDM2, leading to the stabilization and activation of p53. p53 then induces the transcription of various genes involved in cell-cycle arrest, DNA repair and apoptosis
