Activation of p53-p21 pathway
DNA damaging agents activate the p53-p21 pathway causing cell cycle arrest and DNA repair5. This mechanism is exploited by chemotherapeutic agents that induce p21 as a means of inhibiting cancer progression. Investigating p21 regulation in a p53-dependent or -independent manner can form a key basis of tumor suppression6,7.
|Oxaliplatin||Inducer, inhibitor||Exhibits dual role in p53-dependent and -independent pathways. Causes G0-G1 arrest in p53 wild type cells and p21 degradation in p53 mutants8.||ab141054|
|Nocodazole||Inducer||p21 inducer that increases expression of p21 in a p53-dependent fashion in absence of DNA damage9,10.||ab120630|
|Cycloheximide (CHX)||Modulator||Induction of p21 during serum stimulation (indicating serum contains a p21 blocking element)7. CHX traditionally acts as a p21 inhibitor promoting apoptosis in serum-starved cells11.||ab120093|
|PMA||Inducer||p53-independent p21 induction via Sp1 binding sites within p21 promoter12.||ab120297|
