Cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 1A (p21, Cip1), also known as CDKN1A, is a human gene.
Cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 1A (p21, Cip1)
|RNA expression pattern|
This gene encodes a potent cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor. The encoded protein binds to and inhibits the activity of cyclin-CDK2 or -CDK4 complexes, and thus functions as a regulator of cell cycle progression at G1. The expression of this gene is tightly controlled by the tumor suppressor protein p53, through which this protein mediates the p53-dependent cell cycle G1 phase arrest in response to a variety of stress stimuli. This protein can interact with proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), a DNA polymerase accessory factor, and plays a regulatory role in S phase DNA replication and DNA damage repair. This protein was reported to be specifically cleaved by CASP3-like caspases, which thus leads to a dramatic activation of CDK2, and may be instrumental in the execution of apoptosis following caspase activation. Two alternatively spliced variants, which encode an identical protein, have been reported.
p21, also known as cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 1A or CDKN1A, is a human gene on chromosome 6 (location 6p21.2), that encodes a cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor that directly inhibits the activity of cyclin-CDK2 and cyclin-CDK4 complexes. p21 functions as a regulator of cell cycle progression at G1 phase. The expression of p21 is controlled by the tumor suppressor protein p53.
