Cyclin-dependent kinase (cdk) inhibitor. Displays sub-micromolar inhibition of cdk1, cdk2, cdk5, cdk7 and cdk9 (reported IC50 values range from 0.16 - 0.28 μM for cdk5 to 0.8 μM for cdk7). Selective for cdks over a wide range of related kinases including ERK1 and ERK2. Arrests L1210 cells in G1 phase. Inhibits phosphorylation of vimentin in vivo. Antimitotic.

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.
