Sample Data :Anti-CDK9 (1:1500) was used for Western blot analysis of 1) PC3 and 2) DU145 prostate cancer cells (50ug per lane). Bands at the expected MW of 55 and 42 Kda were detected.
Scientific Background :CDK9 is a member of the cyclin-dependent protein kinase (CDK) family. CDK9 is closely related to cdc28 and cdc2 and is an important regulator of the cell cycle (1). CDK9 is a component of the multiprotein complex TAK/P-TEFβ. CDK9 can modulate RNA polymerase II-directed transcription by phosphorylating the C-terminal domain of the largest subunit of RNA polymerase II. CDK9 forms a complex with and is regulated by its regulatory subunit cyclin T or cyclin K. CDK9 also interacts with the HIV-1 Tat protein which suggested a possible involvement of this protein in AIDS (2).
