p21 Waf1/Cip1 Blocking Peptide

p21 Waf1/Cip1 Blocking Peptide #1055

This peptide is used to block p21 Waf1/Cip1 (12D1) Rabbit mAb #2947 reactivity in dot blot protocols.

The quality of the peptide was evaluated by reversed-phase HPLC and by mass spectrometry. The peptide reacts with p21 Waf1/Cip1 (12D1) Rabbit mAb #2947 signal in dot blot.

Use as a blocking reagent to evaluate the specificity of antibody reactivity in dot blot protocols.

Storage:

Supplied in 20 mM potassium phosphate (pH 7.0), 50 mM NaCl, 0.1 mM EDTA, 1 mg/ml BSA, 5% glycerol and 1% DMSO. Store at –20°C.

The tumor suppressor protein p21 Waf1/Cip1 acts as an inhibitor of cell cycle progression. It functions in stoichiometric relationships forming heterotrimeric complexes with cyclins and cyclin-dependent kinases. In association with CDK2 complexes, it serves to inhibit kinase activity and block progression through G1/S (1). However, p21 may also enhance assembly and activity in complexes of CDK4 or CDK6 and cyclin D (2). The carboxy-terminal region of p21 is sufficient to bind and inhibit PCNA, a subunit of DNA polymerase, and may coordinate DNA replication with cell cycle progression (3). Upon UV damage or during cell cycle stages when cdc2/cyclin B or CDK2/cyclin A are active, p53 is phosphorylated and upregulates p21 transcription via a p53-responsive element (4). Protein levels of p21 are downregulated through ubiquitination and proteasomal degradation (5).
