CDK12 and CDK13 are C-terminal domain (CTD) serine kinases that phosphorylate Ser2 in the CTD of RNA polymerase II and which regulate co-transcriptional processing, including splicing and 3'-end RNA processing [1,3-5]. Although CDK12 and CDK13 are closely related structurally, they differ in function. Whilst CDK12 is essential for the expression of genes that are involved in the DNA damage response pathway [2] (generally longer genes with a high number of exons), CDK13 activity affects genes that are required for protein translation.
