This gene is imprinted, with preferential expression of the maternal allele. The encoded protein is a tight-binding, strong inhibitor of several G1 cyclin/Cdk complexes and a negative regulator of cell proliferation. Mutations in this gene are implicated in sporadic cancers and Beckwith-Wiedemann syndorome, suggesting that this gene is a tumor suppressor candidate. Three transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2010]
GeneCards Summary for CDKN1C Gene
CDKN1C (Cyclin Dependent Kinase Inhibitor 1C) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CDKN1C include Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome and Intrauterine Growth Retardation, Metaphyseal Dysplasia, Adrenal Hypoplasia Congenita, And Genital Anomalies. Among its related pathways are Mitotic G1-G1/S phases and Cell Cycle, Mitotic. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include cyclin-dependent protein serine/threonine kinase inhibitor activity. An important paralog of this gene is CDKN1B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CDKN1C Gene
Potent tight-binding inhibitor of several G1 cyclin/CDK complexes (cyclin E-CDK2, cyclin D2-CDK4, and cyclin A-CDK2) and, to lesser extent, of the mitotic cyclin B-CDC2. Negative regulator of cell proliferation. May play a role in maintenance of the non-proliferative state throughout life.
