CDKN2D(redirected from cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 2D)
CDKN2DA gene on chromosome 19p13 that encodes a member of the INK4 family of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors, which form a complex with CDK4 and CDK6, preventing activation of CDK kinases and thus acting as cell growth regulators by controlling cell cycle progression through G1. CDKN2D inhibits neuronal proliferation, as well as spermatogenesis.
