Cyclin-dependent kinase 9 (CDK9) is a gene that encodes a member of a protein complex that is an elongation factor for RNA polymerase II-directed transcription. Missense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift insertions are observed in cancers such as colon cancer, skin cancer, and endometrial cancer.

CDK9 is altered in 0.73% of all cancers with colon adenocarcinoma, endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, high grade ovarian serous adenocarcinoma, and breast invasive ductal carcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].
