Mouse anti Human cdk7 antibody, clone MO-1.1 recognizes human cyclin-dependent kinase 7, also known as 39 kDa protein kinase, cell division protein kinase 7, serine/threonine-protein kinase 1 and TFIIH basal transcription factor complex kinase subunit.

Cdk7 is a 346 amino acid member of the CDC2/CDKX subfamily of serine/threonine family of protein kinases. Cdk7, as part of the CAK complex is involved with the transcription factor TFIIH and is thought to be involved in the control of cell cycle progression, DNA repair and RNA polymerase II (pol II) transcription. Cdk7 demonstrates ubiquitous muclear expression in normal tissues and is expressed in cancer tissues (Bartkova et al. 1996).

Mouse anti Human cdk7 recognizes human cyclin-dependent kinase 7 as a single band of ~39 kDa in multiple human cell lysates by western blotting under reducing conditions.
