Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits cyclin binding activity and cyclin-dependent protein serine/threonine kinase inhibitor activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; negative regulation of cardiac muscle tissue regeneration; and regulation of mitotic cell cycle. Localizes to the cytosol and nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in acute myeloid leukemia; breast cancer; multiple endocrine neoplasia type 4; and myelodysplastic syndrome. Orthologous to human CDKN1B (cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor 1B).
