This CDK4/cyclin D3 recombinant human protein (CDK4: full length, cyclin D3: full length) was expressed in insect cells. CDK4/cyclin D3 serine/threonine kinase is dimeric protein complex. CDK4 is a member of the cyclin-dependent protein kinase family and is involved in the control of cell proliferation during the G1 phase of cell cycle. CDK4 forms a complex with the D-type cyclins and is inhibited by p16 (cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor-2). CDK4 can mediate phosphorylation of the C-terminal region of Rb protein leading to an active transcriptional repression of E2F complex. CDC37 and HSP90 can preferentially associate with the fraction of CDK4 not bound to D-type cyclins. SMAD3 is a major physiologic substrate of the G1 cyclin-dependent kinases CDK4 and CDK2. Although CDK6 and CDK4 can both phosphorylate multiple residues in the Rb protein, they do so with different residue selectivities in vitro; CDK6 phosphorylates Thr821 while CDK4 phosphorylates Thr826 on Rb protein.
