The Cdks are serine/threonine protein kinases which are predominantly involved in the progression of the cell cycle. Subsequently, CDK-cyclin complexes (CDK7, CDK8 and CDK9) were also identified as regulators of transcription. CDK8/CycC is part of the RNA polymerase II holoenzyme complex and phosphorylates the carboxy-terminal domain (CTD) of the largest subunit of RNA polymerase II. On the other hand, CDK8/CycC phosphorylates cyclin H, a component of the CDK activating kinase (CAK), and represses activated transcription by modulation of TFIIH activity.

Human cyclin-dependent protein kinase CDK8, coexpressed in complex with with human CycC.
