Dose of Trp53, the main keeper of genome stability, influences tumorigenesis; however, the causes underlying and driving tumorigenesis over time by the loss of a single p53 allele are still poorly characterized. Here, we found that single p53 allele loss specifically impacted the oxidative, DNA damage and inflammatory status of hematopoietic lineages. In particular, single Trp53 allele loss in mice triggered oxidative stress in peripheral blood granulocytes and spleenocytes, whereas lack of two Trp53 alleles produced enhanced oxidative stress in thymus cells, resulting in a higher incidence of lymphomas in the Trp53 knockout (KO) mice compared with hemizygous (HEM).
