Summary of "Recent advances in the development of cyclin-dependent kinase 7 inhibitors."

Cyclin dependent kinase 7 (CDK7) plays a double role as it activates several other cyclin dependent kinases and participates to the initiation of transcription. This kinase is overexpressed in various types of tumors. Relatively few selective CDK7 inhibitors have been up to now disclosed. Most of these inhibitors belong to two chemical families: pyrazolopyrimidines and pyrazolotriazines on one side and pyrimidines on another side. They also differ by their molecular mechanism of action. Some are acting as competitive inhibitors and some others are covalent inhibitors. With these tools, the understanding of the potential therapeutic interest of CDK7 inhibitors in cancer is rapidly growing. They display antiproliferative activity against various types of tumors and leukemia and synergies have been identified. Two inhibitors are undergoing clinical testing. The most potent compounds inhibit a large number of cell-lines with IC < 200 nM.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor that coordinates the activation of CYCLIN and CYCLIN-DEPENDENT KINASES during the CELL CYCLE. It interacts with active CYCLIN D complexed to CYCLIN-DEPENDENT KINASE 4 in proliferating cells, while in arrested cells it binds and inhibits CYCLIN E complexed to CYCLIN-DEPENDENT KINASE 2.

A key regulator of CELL CYCLE progression. It partners with CYCLIN E to regulate entry into S PHASE and also interacts with CYCLIN A to phosphorylate RETINOBLASTOMA PROTEIN. Its activity is inhibited by CYCLIN-DEPENDENT KINASE INHIBITOR P27 and CYCLIN-DEPENDENT KINASE INHIBITOR P21.

Cyclin-dependent kinase 4 is a key regulator of G1 PHASE of the CELL CYCLE. It partners with CYCLIN D to phosphorylate RETINOBLASTOMA PROTEIN. CDK4 activity is inhibited by CYCLIN-DEPENDENT KINASE INHIBITOR P16.

Cyclin-dependent kinase 6 associates with CYCLIN D and phosphorylates RETINOBLASTOMA PROTEIN during G1 PHASE of the CELL CYCLE. It helps regulate the transition to S PHASE and its kinase activity is inhibited by CYCLIN-DEPENDENT KINASE INHIBITOR P18.

A cyclin subtype that is specific for CYCLIN-DEPENDENT KINASE 4 and CYCLIN-DEPENDENT KINASE 6. Unlike most cyclins, cyclin D expression is not cyclical, but rather it is expressed in response to proliferative signals. Cyclin D may therefore play a role in cellular responses to mitogenic signals.
