Gene: Cdkn2a (cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor 2A) Mus musculus
Symbol: Cdkn2a
Name: cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor 2A
Description: Exhibits MDM2/MDM4 family protein binding activity; enzyme inhibitor activity; and protein N-terminus binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of cell population proliferation; negative regulation of cellular protein metabolic process; and positive regulation of apoptotic process. Localizes to cytoplasm; granular component; and protein-containing complex. Predicted to colocalize with nuclear body. Is expressed in several structures, including bone marrow; central nervous system; dorsal root ganglion; eye; and testis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including breast cancer (multiple); carcinoma (multiple); hematologic cancer (multiple); melanoma (multiple); and nervous system cancer (multiple). Orthologous to human CDKN2A (cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor 2A); PARTICIPATES IN altered G1/S transition pathway; G1/S transition pathway; pancreatic cancer pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
