    ..Now, through chemical genetics, CDK8, a kinase associated with the Mediator transcriptional coactivator complex, has emerged as an upstream inducer of glycolysis and a possible target for anticancer drug discovery. ..

    ..Apoptosis was dependent on death receptor DR5, a p53 transcriptional target whose expression was refractory to Cdk7 inhibition. Therefore, p53 activation induces transcriptional dependency to sensitize cancer cells to Cdk7 inhibition. ..
