GeneCards Summary for CDK12 Gene
CDK12 (Cyclin Dependent Kinase 12) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CDK12 include Corneal Endothelial Dystrophy and Gastric Cancer. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and DNA Damage. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and protein tyrosine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CDK13.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CDK12 Gene
Cyclin-dependent kinase that phosphorylates the C-terminal domain (CTD) of the large subunit of RNA polymerase II (POLR2A), thereby acting as a key regulator of transcription elongation. Regulates the expression of genes involved in DNA repair and is required for the maintenance of genomic stability. Preferentially phosphorylates 'Ser-5' in CTD repeats that are already phosphorylated at 'Ser-7', but can also phosphorylate 'Ser-2'. Required for RNA splicing, possibly by phosphorylating SRSF1/SF2. Involved in regulation of MAP kinase activity, possibly leading to affect the response to estrogen inhibitors.
