  Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (CDK5) is a serine/threonine kinase homologue attributed to the mitotic cyclin-dependent kinase family. Both the kinase activity and the biological effects of CDK5 in central nervous system are mainly dependent on association with its regulatory subunit 1 known as CDK5R1 (p35). In the present study, the full-length coding regions of CDK5 and CDK5R1 were cloned from pigs. Radiation hybrid mapping localized porcine CDK5 to chromosome 18q12-13, whereas CDK5R1 was electro-localized to chromosome 12q12. Real-time quantitative RT-PCR (qRT-PCR) showed that CDK5 mRNA is ubiquitously present in all porcine tissues examined, with relatively high levels in cerebral cortex, cerebellum, testicle and lung. We also examined the expression profile of porcine CDK5/CDK5R1 in various tissues at different developmental stages. The results indicated that CDK5 mRNA reaches the highest level in cerebral cortex at two months of age and in cerebellum and liver at 4 months of age, respectively, whereas the peak level of CDK5R1 was observed in both cerebral cortex and cerebellum at two months of age, indicating the pivotal role of CDK5/CDK5R1 during the development of porcine brain.
