pan-CDK inhibitor BAY1000394 
An orally bioavailable cyclin dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitor with potential antineoplastic activity. pan-CDK inhibitor BAY1000394 selectively binds to and inhibits the activity of CDK1/Cyclin B, CDK2/Cyclin E, CDK4/Cyclin D1, and CDK9/Cyclin T1, serine/threonine kinases that play key roles in the regulation of the cell cycle progression and cellular proliferation. Inhibition of these kinases leads to cell cycle arrest during the G1/S transition, thereby leading to an induction of apoptosis, and inhibition of tumor cell proliferation. CDKs are often dysregulated in cancerous cells. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
