The central role of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) in cell cycle regulation makes them a promising target for discovering small inhibitory molecules that can modify the degree of cell proliferation. The three-dimensional structure of CDK2 provides a structural foundation for understanding the mechanisms of activation and inhibition of CDK2 and for the discovery of inhibitors. In this article five structures of human CDK2 are summarised: apoprotein, ATP complex, olomoucine complex, isopentenyladenine complex, and des-chloro-flavopiridol complex.
