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.

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.
