MA5-17093 targets P16 in IHC and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-17093 immunogen is purified recombinant fragment of P16 expressed in E. Coli.
p16 (cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 2A, INK4a) is a tumor suppressor protein. It is a specific inhibitor of Cdk 4 / Cdk 6, and a tumor suppressor involved in the pathogenesis of a variety of malignancies. Recent analyses of the p16 INK4a gene revealed homozygous deletions, nonsense, missense, or frameshift mutations in several human cancers. Although the frequency of p16 INK4a abnormalities is higher in tumor derived cell lines than in unselected primary tumors, significant subsets of clinical cases with aberrant p16 INK4a gene have been reported among melanomas, gliomas, esophageal, pancreatic, lung, and urinary bladder carcinomas, and some types of leukemia.
