Protein Coding Gene : Cdk4 cyclin-dependent kinase 4

Primary Identifier  MGI:88357 Organism  Mus musculus
Chromosome  10 NCBI Gene Number  12567
Mgi Type  protein coding gene
description  FUNCTION: Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)

Exhibits cyclin binding activity and cyclin-dependent protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to interleukin-4; cellular response to lipid; and regulation of lipid metabolic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including cyclin D2-CDK4 complex; nucleus; and transcription regulator complex. Colocalizes with bicellular tight junction. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; branchial arch; genitourinary system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Used to study type 1 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including carcinoma (multiple); familial melanoma; glioblastoma multiforme; obesity; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human CDK4 (cyclin dependent kinase 4).
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mutants have small size, insulin-deficient diabetes, sterility in females; near-sterility in males and impaired prolactin secretion due to hypoplastic pituitary development. Locomotor and endocrine gland defects are seen with some alleles. [provided by MGI curators]
