Potent inhibitor of cyclin dependent kinases (cdks; reported IC50 values are 6 - 45, 14, 16 and 20 nM for cdk2, cdk5, cdk1 and cdk9 respectively). Also inhibits cdk4 and cdk7 in the sub micromolar range. Exhibits antiproliferative activity in human tumor cell lines. Blocks cell cycling at G2-M, S and G1 phases; reduces the proportion of actively cycling cells in vivo.

Cell Cycle & DNA Damage Repair Poster
In normal cells, each stage of the cell cycle is tightly regulated, however in cancer cells many genes and proteins that are involved in the regulation of the cell cycle are mutated or over expressed. Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the stages of the cell cycle and DNA repair. It also highlights strategies for enhancing replicative stress in cancer cells to force mitotic catastrophe and cell death.
