Short name= CDK4I
Tumor suppressor CDKN2A
Short name= p16-INK4
Store at -20°C, for extended storage, conserve at -20°C or -80°C.
Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.
Acts as a negative regulator of the proliferation of normal cells by interacting strongly with CDK4 and CDK6. This inhibits their ability to interact with cyclins D and to phosphorylate the retinoblastoma protein (By similarity).
CDKN2 cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor family
Expressed predominantly in lung and testis. In the testis, restricted to germ cells in the seminiferous epithelium. Not detected in premeiotic spermatogonia but high levels found in postmeiotic spermatids. In primary tumors, low levels detected in melanoc
