Y39G10AL.3 Details Help
Description  The cdk-7 gene encodes a cyclin-dependent kinase orthologous to human CDK7 (OMIM:601955) that is a component of the general transcription factor IIH (TFIIH) complex; CDK-7 is required during embryogenesis for mRNA transcription and phosphorylation of RNA polymerase II on serine 2 and serine 5, as well as for cell cycle progression, maintenance of ploidy, and completion of meiosis following fertilization.
Homology Group (KOG)  Cdk activating kinase (CAK)/RNA polymerase II transcription initiation/nucleotide excision repair factor TFIIH/TFIIK, kinase subunit CDK7
GO Terms  mitotic cell cycle, embryonic (GO:0045448) ; protein amino acid phosphorylation (GO:0006468) ; mRNA transcription (GO:0009299) ; cellular_component unknown (GO:0008372) ; cyclin-dependent protein kinase activity (GO:0004693) ; protein kinase activity (GO:0004672) ; ATP binding (GO:0005524) ; protein serine/threonine kinase activity (GO:0004674)
