P14ARF inhibits the function of MDM2. Therefore, in the absence of p14ARF, MDM2 is not inhibited from ubiquitinating p53, resulting in the degradation of p53 and therefore removing the cell cycle break induced by the downstream pathways of p21CIP1. 54 Abrogation of the interaction with CDK4 renders p16INK4A non-functional as a brake of the cell cycle. 55 All CDK4 mutations identified to date cause an amino acid substitution for the arginine at residue 24, which is required for the interaction of CDK4 and p16INK4A.
