p16 family

Six CDKN2A families had pancreatic cancer . They also show that families with the CDKN2A 113insArg mutation have an increased risk not only of multiple melanomas and pancreatic carcinoma but also of breast cancer. We previously described CDKN2A exon 2 mutations in a pilot study of 43 esophageal cancers.

Disease relevance of CDKN2A

Although germline CDKN2A coding mutations cosegregate with melanoma in 25-60% of families predisposed to the disease, there remains a number of mutation-negative families that demonstrate linkage of inherited melanoma to 9p21 markers. High frequency of multiple melanomas and breast and pancreas carcinomas in CDKN2A mutation-positive melanoma families.

Interactions about p16

CDKN2A (gene) has been shown to interact with SERTAD1, CCNG1, Death associated protein 6, P53, E4F1, Cyclin-dependent kinase 4, Cyclin-dependent kinase 6, Mdm2, RPL11 and PPP1R9B. In spite of their structural and functional differences, the CDK inhibitor isoforms and the ARF product encoded by this gene, through the regulatory roles of CDK4 and p53 in cell cycle G1 progression, share a common functionality in control of the G1 phase of the cell cycle. This gene is frequently mutated or deleted in a wide variety of tumors and is known... [Lire la suite]
