Cyclin-dependent kinase 1 (CDK1) is a gene that encodes a member of the serine/threonine protein kinase family. The protein functions as a catalytic subunit of the protein kinase complex referred to as M-phase promoting factor (MPF). The protein plays a regulatory role in the cell cycle.

CDK1 is altered in 0.74% of all cancers with lung adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma, oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma, and anaplastic oligodendroglioma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].
