The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the CMGC family of serine/threonine protein kinases. This kinase is a catalytic subunit of the protein kinase complex that is important for cell cycle G1 phase progression and G1/S transition. CDK6 is a key player in the differentiation of a variety of cell types, including osteoclasts, astrocytes, thymocytes and myeloid cells. CDK6 kinase activity is required for erythroid cytoskeletal organization/dynamics with effects on erythrocyte lifespan. Genetic variance in CDK6 gene associated with haematological parameters (e.g., white blood cell count).
