CDK3 (Q00526) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis
CDK3, Cyclin-dependent kinase 3
Enzyme Classification 18.104.22.168
Also Known as CDK3_HUMAN, CDK3, CDKN3
Serine/threonine-protein kinase that plays a critical role in the control of the eukaryotic cell cycle; involved in G0-G1 and G1-S cell cycle transitions. Interacts with CCNC/cyclin-C during interphase. Phosphorylates histone H1, ATF1, RB1 and CABLES1. ATF1 phosphorylation triggers ATF1 transactivation and transcriptional activities, and promotes cell proliferation and transformation. CDK3/cyclin-C mediated RB1 phosphorylation is required for G0-G1 transition. Promotes G1-S transition probably by contributing to the activation of E2F1, E2F2 and E2F3 in a RB1-independent manner. Interacts with CABLES1 and CABLES2 (By similarity). Interacts with ATF1. Binding to CCNC/cyclin-C promotes RB1 phosphorylation.
