Gene: CDKN2A (cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor 2A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CDKN2A
Name: cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor 2A
RGD ID: 737039
Description: Enables several functions, including MDM2/MDM4 family protein binding activity; NF-kappaB binding activity; and enzyme inhibitor activity. Involved in several processes, including regulation of cellular protein metabolic process; regulation of mitotic cell cycle phase transition; and regulation of nucleobase-containing compound metabolic process. Acts upstream of or within negative regulation of cyclin-dependent protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Located in mitochondrion; nuclear lumen; and senescence-associated heterochromatin focus. Part of protein-containing complex. Colocalizes with nuclear body. Implicated in several diseases, including breast cancer (multiple); hematologic cancer (multiple); melanoma (multiple); nervous system cancer (multiple); and pancreatic cancer (multiple). Biomarker of several diseases, including hepatobiliary system cancer (multiple); in situ carcinoma (multiple); leukemia (multiple); reproductive organ cancer (multiple); and urinary system cancer (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
