Molecular analysis of the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor family: p16(CDKN2/MTS1/INK4A), p18(INK4C) and p27(Kip1) genes in neuroblastomas.


BACKGROUND Chromosomal abnormalities involving band 1p32, especially deletions, are frequent in neuroblastomas, indicating that a tumor suppressor gene(s) is localized at this region. The p18 gene, one of the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor (CDKI) genes, maps to this chromosomal region. Complexes of cyclin and cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) play important… (More)
