Cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) activity is essential for eukaryotic cell cycle events. Multiple cyclins activate CDKs in all eukaryotes, but it is unclear whether multiple cyclins are really required for cell cycle progression. It has been argued that cyclins may predominantly act as simple enzymatic activators of CDKs; in opposition to this idea, it has been argued that cyclins might target the activated CDK to particular substrates or inhibitors. Such targeting might occur through a combination of factors, including temporal expression, protein associations, and subcellular localization.
