Background p16(INK4A), also known as cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 2A(CDKN2A), or multiple tumor suppressor 1(MTS1). The p16 gene(CDKN2A) was mapped to 9p21. The p16 gene encodes a negative regulator of the cell cycle. CDKN2 plays an important role during tumorigenesis or tumor progression in a significant proportion of pancreatic adenocarcinomas. Germ-line mutations in the CDKN2A tumor-suppressor gene have been linked to the development of melanoma in some families with inherited melanoma.
