CDK6


Also found in: Acronyms.

CDK6

A gene on chromosome 7q21-q22 that encodes a cyclin-dependent kinase, which is a catalytic subunit of the protein kinase complex important in cell cycle G1-phase progression and G1/S transition. CDK6, with CDK4, phosphorylates and regulates the activity of tumour suppressor protein Rb.

Molecular pathology
CDK6 expression is upregulated in some cancers.

In this study, we reported for the first time that LIPUS promoted proliferation and migration of HaCaT cells, along with up-regulation of cyclinD1, CDK6, CDK4, VEGF, MMP-2, and MMP-9.
The CCNDI protein is a major regulator in the cell cycle's Gl-S checkpoint, and it has an important role in cell cycle arrest, tumor suppressor inhibition, or oncogene activation because it is related to CDK4 and CDK6 [21].

We found that the expression of both the cell death (Bad and Bax) and cell proliferation (Ccnd1, Cdk6, and Sox4) genes was significantly increased in the organoids and intestine of [Lep.sup.ob/ob] mice compared to normal (Figures 2(d), 2(e), 2(g), and 2(h)).
studied the role of CDK6, but he noticed that CDK6 expression in OLP did not differ from normal mucosa, an observation which suggests that CDK6 is not significantly involved in OLP pathogenesis [74].
The company said Verzenio (abemaciclib) is an inhibitor of CDK4 and CDK6, which are activated by binding to D-cyclins.
Eli Lilly and Company today announced that its Phase 3 JUNIPER study evaluating Verzenio (abemaciclib), a cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK)4 and CDK6 inhibitor, as monotherapy in KRAS-mutated, advanced non-small lung cancer (NSCLC) did not meet its primary endpoint of overall survival (OS).
Cyclin D1 achieves this effect by binding to cyclin dependent kinases (CDK) 4 and CDK6 forming a CDK/cyclin complex able to phosphorylate the retinoblastoma (RB1) gene- with subsequent release of the E2F transcription factor activating essential genes needed for S phase entry [13].
On the other hand, miR449 directly affects E2F inducer Cdk6 and CycE, thus forming negative feedbackloops [12,14].
In contrast, miR-200a-3p upregulation suppresses gene inhibitors for EED and EZH2 (KIF20A and HSD17B11 for EED and CDK6 for EZH2) and allows these two transcription factors to positively affect the transcription of interferons IFNA1 and IFNA2.
