CDK9 a protein kinase of the CDK family. Forms a complex with and is regulated by its regulatory subunit cyclin T or cyclin K. A component of the multiprotein complex TAK/P-TEFb, which is an elongation factor for RNA polymerase II-directed transcription and functions by phosphorylating the C-terminal domain of the largest subunit of RNA polymerase II. Transcriptional elongation factor and cofactor for HIV Tat protein; RNAi blocks HIV replication, and inhibitors also block varicella zoster replication. Mediates signals leading to cardiac hypertrophy. Inhibitor: Flavopiridol. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
