For maximum recovery please spin prior to use. Unless noted below, aliquots of the 5 µg, 10 µg and 20 µg sizes of kinase are not recommended as materials can be used in original packaging until exhausted. For larger sizes, the number of freeze/thaws may be reduced by preparing aliquots, aliquots below 20 µL are not recommended. Please never store a kinase diluted. If properly stored at -80C, this product is guaranteed for 6 months from date of purchase.
Protein Form: Recombinant, Full Length
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 selectivity in vitro; CDK6 phosphorylates Thr821 while CDK4 phosphorylates Thr826 on Rb protein.
