DescriptionA family of proteins designated as cdks are critical regulators of cell cycle progression. The prototype member of this family, p34/Cdc 2, and a related protein Cdk 2, function late in the cycle while Cdk 4 and Cdk 6 are critically involved in G1 to S progression. The p54/Cdk 8 interacts exclusively with Cyclin C. The Cdk 8 Cyclin C complex activates the kinase. Because of analogy with yeast Cdk 8, it has been proposed that the human Cdk 8 Cyclin C may interact with RNA polymerase, thus influencing the transcription mechanism(s) that lead to cell division.
