A candidate tumor suppressor gene CDKN2A:p16 was recently identified in the 9p21 region (68), an area commonly altered in bladder cancer (60). CDKN2A encodes a protein which is part of a new group of cell cycle inhibitory molecules known as cyclin dependent protein kinases (CDK) (69). Among these are also p15 (INK4B/MTS2) which together with p16 can inhibit the phosphorylation of the retinoblastoma protein (RB), thereby inhibiting the cell cycle. Loss of either of these genes may have profound implications on the cell cycle and result in uncontrolled growth and tumor formation.
