The solution structure of the tumor suppressor p16INK4A has been determined by NMR, and important recognition regions of both cdk4 and p16INK4A have been identified. The tertiary structure of p16INK4A contains four helix-turn-helix motifs linked by three loops. Twelve tumorigenic mutants of p16INK4A have been constructed and analyzed for their structure and(More)
Within the tumor suppressor protein INK4 (inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinase 4) family, p15INK4B is the smallest and the only one whose structure has not been determined previously, probably due to the protein's conformational flexibility and instability. In this work, multidimensional NMR studies were performed on this protein. The first tertiary(More)
The INK4 (inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinase 4) family consists of four tumor-suppressor proteins: p15(INK4B), p16(INK4A), p18(INK4C), and p19(INK4D). While their sequences and structures are highly homologous, they show appreciable differences in conformational flexibility, stability, and aggregation tendency. Here, p16 and p18 were first compared(More)
We report the first detailed structure-function analyses of p18INK4C (p18), which is a homologue of the important tumor suppressor p16INK4A (p16). Twenty-four mutants were designed rationally. The global conformations of the mutants were characterized by NMR, while the function was assayed by inhibition of cyclin-dependent kinase 4 (CDK4). Most of these(More)
