p21 (CDKN1A) Antibody (C-term)

Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - p21 (CDKN1A) Antibody (C-term) AP7527b
    The anti-CDKN1A Pab (Cat. #AP7527b) is used in Western blot to detect CDKN1A in T-47D cell lysate.
  • IHC-P - p21 (CDKN1A) Antibody (C-term) AP7527b
    Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human cancer tissue reacted with the primary antibody, which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by DAB staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated. BC = breast carcinoma; HC = hepatocarcinoma.
  • IF - p21 (CDKN1A) Antibody (C-term) AP7527b
    Confocal immunofluorescent analysis of p21 (CDKN1A) Antibody (C-term)(Cat#AP7527b) with 293 cell followed by Alexa Fluor 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit lgG (green).Actin filaments have been labeled with Alexa Fluor 555 phalloidin (red).DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclear (blue).
  • FC - p21 (CDKN1A) Antibody (C-term) AP7527b
    p21 (CDKN1A) Antibody (C-term) (Cat. #AP7527b) flow cytometric analysis of 293 cells (right histogram) compared to a negative control cell (left histogram).FITC-conjugated goat-anti-rabbit secondary antibodies were used for the analysis.

Protein Information
Synonyms CAP20, CDKN1, CIP1, MDA6, PIC1, SDI1, WA
Function May be the important intermediate by which p53/TP53 mediates its role as an inhibitor of cellular proliferation in response to DNA damage. Binds to and inhibits cyclin-dependent kinase activity, preventing phosphorylation of critical cyclin- dependent kinase substrates and blocking cell cycle progression. Functions in the nuclear localization and assembly of cyclin D- CDK4 complex and promotes its kinase activity towards RB1. At higher stoichiometric ratios, inhibits the kinase activity of the cyclin D-CDK4 complex.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm. Nucleus.
Tissue Location Expressed in all adult tissues, with 5-fold lower levels observed in the brain

CDKN1A is a potent cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor. It binds to and inhibits the activity of cyclin-CDK2 or -CDK4 complexes, and thus functions as a regulator of cell cycle progression at G1. Expression is tightly controlled by the tumor suppressor protein p53, through which this protein mediates the p53-dependent cell cycle G1 phase arrest in response to a variety of stress stimuli. This protein can interact with proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), a DNA polymerase accessory factor, and plays a regulatory role in S phase DNA replication and DNA damage repair. This protein was reported to be specifically cleaved by CASP3-like caspases, which thus leads to a dramatic activation of CDK2, and may be instrumental in the execution of apoptosis following caspase activation.
