Cyclin-dependent kinase 2 (CDK2) is a member of a highly conserved family of protein kinases that regulate the eukaryotic cell cycle. The crystal structures of the human CDK2 apoenzyme and its Mg2+ ATP complex have been determined to 2.4 A resolution. The structure is bi-lobate, like that of the cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase, but contains a unique helix-loop segment that interferes with ATP and protein substrate binding and probably plays a key part in the regulation of all cyclin-dependent kinases.
