CDK14 (PFTK1)/cyclin Y is a member of the CDC2-related protein kinase family which is expressed primarily in the postnatal and adult nervous system. CDK14 is expressed at high levels in brain, pancreas, kidney, heart, testis, and ovary. CDK14 amino acid residue ser119 is required for its interaction with all four 14-3-3 isoforms, while ser120 may contribute slightly to CDK14 binding. CDK14 acts as a cyclin-dependent kinase that regulates cell cycle progression and cell proliferation. Overexpression of CDK14 predicts resistance to chemotherapy in patients with oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma. Recombinant human full-length CDK14 and Cyclin Y (2-end) were co-expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using N-terminal GST tags.
