Arnold Levine at Princeton published a paper a few years ago that
describes a temperature-sensitive p53 cDNA which blocks BalbC 3T3's in
G2.  you might want to look up the paper and see if the cell line or the
cDNA would be useful to you.  He is a nice guy who is willing to share
reagents with other people.
