    Poor therapeutic outcomes and serious side effects, together with acquired resistance to multiple drugs, are common problems of current cancer therapies. Therefore, there is an urgent need for new cancer-targeted drugs, which has led (inter alia) to the development of molecules that can specifically inhibit cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs). In addition to their cell cycle regulatory functions, CDKs, especially CDK7 and CDK9, play important roles in the regulation of RNA polymerase II-mediated transcription. Here, we report on progress in the preclinical development of CDK inhibitors and their anticancer activities. Special attention is paid to the action mechanisms of the pan-specific CDK inhibitors flavopiridol and roscovitine, which have already entered phase II clinical trials as treatments for various tumours.
