This gene encodes a potent cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor. The encoded protein binds to and inhibits the activity of cyclin-CDK2 or CDK4 complexes, and thus functions as a regulator of cell cycle progression at G1. The expression of this gene 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. Two alternatively spliced variants, which encode an identical protein, have been reported.

Biochemical characterization of the anti-mp21 monoclonal antibody
Western blot analysis of mp21 expression in total protein extracts from TT243 (no irradiated mefs), TT244 (10Gy 24h irradiated mefs), mouse mefs p21 ko, mouse mefs p21 wt and Hek-p21 transfected cells. TT244 mefs show a 18kDa band corresponding to mp21 protein. TT243 mefs were used as no irradiated control. p21 WT mouse cells also express mp21 while p21KO mouse cells does not express mp21 protein.
