Entrez Gene Summary for CDK11A Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the p34Cdc2 protein kinase family. p34Cdc2 kinase family members are known to be essential for eukaryotic cell cycle control. This gene is in close proximity to CDC2L1, a nearly identical gene in the same chromosomal region. The gene loci including this gene, CDC2L1, as well as metalloprotease MMP21/22, consist of two identical, tandemly linked genomic regions, which are thought to be a part of the larger region that has been duplicated. This gene and CDC2L1 were shown to be deleted or altered frequently in neuroblastoma with amplified MYCN genes. The protein kinase encoded by this gene could be cleaved by caspases and was demonstrated to play roles in cell apoptosis. Many transcript variants encoding several different isoforms have been found for this gene, but the full-length nature of only two have been determined so far. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CDK11A Gene

CDK11A (Cyclin-Dependent Kinase 11A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CDK11A include neuroblastoma. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Cell Cycle, Mitotic. GO annotations related to this gene include protein serine/threonine kinase activity and cyclin-dependent protein serine/threonine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CDK12.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CDK11A Gene

  • Appears to play multiple roles in cell cycle progression, cytokinesis and apoptosis. The p110 isoforms have been suggested to be involved in pre-mRNA splicing, potentially by phosphorylating the splicing protein SFRS7. The p58 isoform may act as a negative regulator of normal cell cycle progression.

    • Duplicated gene. CDK11A and CDK11B encode almost identical protein kinases of 110 kDa that contain at their C-termini the open reading frame of a smaller 58 kDa isoform which is expressed following IRES-mediated alternative initiation of translation
