Biological Activity for (R)-CR8
(R)-CR8 is a cyclin dependent kinase (cdk) inhibitor (reported IC50 values are 0.036 - 0.07, 0.09 - 0.8, 0.13 - 0.68, 0.18 - 1 and >1 μM for cdk2, cdk1, cdk5, cdk9 and cdk7, respectively). Also inhibits casein kinase 1 (CK1; IC50 = 0.6 μM). Acts as molecular glue; forms a complex between CDK12-cyclin K and the CUL4 adapter protein DDB1 resulting in ubiquination and degradation of cyclin K.
