Gene: CDKN1A (cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor 1A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CDKN1A
Name: cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor 1A
Description: Exhibits enzyme binding activity and protein kinase regulator activity. Involved in several processes, including intracellular signal transduction; mitotic cell cycle phase transition; and regulation of protein kinase activity. Localizes to the cyclin-dependent protein kinase holoenzyme complex and nucleus. Implicated in malignant glioma; ocular hypertension; oral mucosa leukoplakia; oral squamous cell carcinoma; and primary open angle glaucoma. Biomarker of several diseases, including Barrett's esophagus; Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy; acoustic neuroma; carcinoma (multiple); and papilloma (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
