Basically, all the p53 information is spread over a bunch of GenBank entries
and in an obscure database.  For a protein whose mutations cause half of all
human cancers, you'd think the data wouldn't be such a mess!

Couldn't all this information be put into a single GenBank entry?  Then the
answer would be a single accession number, and it would be easy for everybody
to do research.
