Cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p57 (CDKN1C) or p57KIP2 (kinase inhibitory protein) is a tumor suppressor gene. It is a 316 amino acid protein with conserved amino- and carboxy-terminal domains and sequences with proline-alanine repeats. During mouse embryogenesis, p57KIP2 transcript is highly expressed in skeletal muscles, brain, heart, lungs and eye. The gene encoding this protein is localized on human chromosome 11p15.4.
synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 303-316 of human Kip2, conjugated to KLH.
Anti-p57Kip2 antibody produced in rabbit has been used in Western blotting.
Cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p57 (CDKN1C) or p57KIP2 (kinase inhibitory protein) plays a vital role as a tight-binding inhibitor of several G1 cyclin/cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) complexes. It is a negative regulator of cell proliferation. Mutation in this gene has been associated with Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome. p57Kip2 facilitates direct inhibition of DNA replication by binding to the proliferating cell nuclear antigen.
